Dear Victorianists,

We’ve received a few queries about accommodation, following yesterday’s e-mail responses to the abstracts.

Accommodation is not included in the conference fees, but we have secured a BAVS 2016 rate with the Jury’s Inn. In addition, we have pre-booked ensuite and semi-ensuite university accommodation for the conference, which you can find at this link (or under the ‘Accommodation’  tab in the menu). We have also provided a list of some other accommodation options in the area, with whom we have no affiliation.

Finally, we hope that registration will be available from Monday, 21 March. The reason for the slight delay is that we have been able to arrange for it all to happen online – so, you will not need to e-mail  in a Word form, but can fill in a digital form instead, which will be submitted to our administrators automatically. This will hopefully make everyone’s life much easier, and it also keeps your information much more secure.

More details to follow! In the meantime, leave your questions here in a comment, or e-mail us at
