Nineteenth-century British literature and culture are a rich field for interdisciplinary studies.

Nineteenth-century British literature and culture are a rich field for interdisciplinary studies. Since the turn of the twentieth century, scholars and critics have tracked the intersections and tensions between Victorian literature and the visual arts, politics, social organisation, economic life, technical innovations, scientific thought - in short, culture in its broadest sense. In recent years, theoretical challenges and historiographical shifts have unsettled the assumptions of previous scholarly syntheses and called into question the terms of older debates.

Dickens and Landscape Discourse is a contextual study, offering valuable insights into the significance of geographical and social placement in nineteenth-century literature.

Stories about Jewesses proliferated in nineteenth-century Britain as debates about the place of the Jews in the modern nation raged.

By mid-century, Austen was widely accepted within academia as a great English novelist. The second half of the 20th century saw a proliferation of Austen scholarship, which explored numerous aspects of her works: artistic, ideological, and historical. A study of other important dimensions of some French translations, such as free indirect discourse, do much to nuance our understanding of Austen's initial "aesthetic" reception with her first French readership. Austen uses the narrative technique of free indirect discourse to represent Anne Elliot's consciousness in Persuasion.

Dickens and Landscape Discourse is a contextual study, offering valuable insights into the significance of geographical and social placement in nineteenth-century literature. Jane H. Berard considers landscape contexts available to Dickens, such as topographical poetry, antiquarianism, tourism, John Britton’s Beauties of Wiltshire, and the landscape discourse in Dickens’ other works to open up a reading of Martin Chuzzlewit (1843-44), set in Wiltshire. Though Dickens can be seen reflecting or resisting the value-laden discourses embedded in his landscapes, he communicates to his readers of Martin Chuzzlewit through an interactive, oppositional, and subversive social discourse to expose a landscape of death and the Victorians’ struggle for control over their situation.
