Dear Victorianists,

You will have noted that our Call for Papers closed on 1 March. We have continued to receive abstracts, which will automatically be placed on the waiting list, but will not be considered at this time.

The abstracts committee has its initial meeting to discuss all the abstracts on Wednesday, 9 March, with a number of additional meetings to follow, and we hope to bet back to you with a response by (or soon after) Friday, 18 March.

In the meantime, give yourselves a hand – our collected document of abstracts comes in at more than 100,000 words!
