The Hoarding is a blog devoted to reporting recent work in British Romantic and Victorian literature. Although it has been on hiatus since June 2013, the site is currently under redesign and a relaunch is planned for early 2015. Please continue to send information, inquiries, and requests.
According to the OED, a hoarding is a nineteenth-century term for “a temporary fence made of boards inclosing a building while in course of erection or repair; often used for posting bills and advertisements; hence, any boarding on which bills are posted.”
The site was founded by Andrew Stauffer, an associate professor in the Department of English at the University of Virginia. He serves as the Director of NINES, a federation of peer-reviewed, online scholarly projects in nineteenth-century studies.
