What is The Hoarding?

I’m starting this blog as a way of calling attention to new scholarly work in Romantic and Victorian studies, with attention to books, articles, digital projects, and conferences in the field.

My hope is that scholars in the field will find The Hoarding to be a useful place of resort to discover new publications and resources.

In the nineenth-century, hoardings — wooden walls thrown up around construction sites — were a favorite target of the bill-stickers, who would cover them with broadsides and posters announcing the latest publications, performances, and the like.
