Founded in 2000, The British Association for Victorian Studies (BAVS) is a multidisciplinary organisation dedicated to the advancement and dissemination of knowledge about the Victorian period. It has over 600 members based in the UK and beyond, and drawn both from the academic community and the general public. Our members have a wide range of interests in the nineteenth century, including art history, cultural studies, history, literary studies, performance studies and the history of science.

The BAVS Annual conference brings together scholars from a range of disciplines to discuss key issues in Victorian studies. This year (31 August-2 September, 2016) it will be hosted by Cardiff University, under the theme ‘Consuming (the) Victorians’. Click here to view this year’s Call for Papers.
