About VSAWC

Founded in 1972, the Victorian Studies Association of Western Canada (VSAWC) promotes nineteenth-century interdisciplinary studies. VSAWC hosts an annual conference at which Victorianists gather from Canada and beyond to listen to keynote speakers of international reputation, and to share their own scholarly findings and teaching experiences with colleagues.

Collegial and friendly, the Association welcomes Victorianists from all disciplines of Victorian studies. Members include scholars, teachers, students, and researchers in fields such as Victorian literature, history, cultural studies, gender studies, art history, science, religion, theatre, law, and music.
