Objectives
2) To rethink theories of nationalism and the role of cultural artifacts in constructing a national subjectivity through the lens of Victorian literature. 3) To trace the relationship between the expanding literary marketplace and the Victorian serial novel. 4) To identify a break between high and low literature earlier than often suggested, and to highlight the complex rhetoric around this internally incoherent break.
