The Hoarding is a blog devoted to reporting recent work in British Romantic and Victorian literature. Please 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 Hoarding 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.
The site is currently directed by John Savarese at the University of Waterloo, with contributing editors Sarah Balkin (University of Melbourne), Sean Barry (Longwood University), and Greg Ellerman (Concordia University).
