Journal of Illustration Studies
Launched in 2007, the Journal of Illustration Studies (JOIS), offers a platform to develop and to disseminate scholarship on illustration studies. In operating as a focal point for this emergent discipline, JOIS builds on the success of both its sister-journal, Romantic Textualities, and previous CEIR activities, such as the Database of Mid-Victorian wood-engraved Illustration and the Illustration Studies Research Network. Like Romantic Textualities, its research appears in the form of peer-reviewed essays, reports and book reviews.
Romantic Textualities: Literature and Print Culture, 1780–1840
Originally appearing in 1997 as Cardiff Corvey: Reading the Romantic Text, this online journal focuses on the interface between literature, book history and material cultures during the Romantic era. Romantic Textualities disseminates scholarship in a variety of forms: peer-reviewed essays, reports and bibliographical checklists and review articles. Past essays have included studies as diverse as Wordsworth and the rise of copyright, metropolitan art criticism, travel writing, sentimental fiction and morality, Gothic bluebooks, and discourses of gardening.
New Edinburgh Edition of the Collected Works of Robert Louis Stevenson
The 39-volume New Edinburgh Edition presents new, annotated texts of Stevenson’s most popular works, such as Treasure Island and Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, and brings back into print some of his lesser-known writing. Each volume considers the various states in which Stevenson’s texts appeared, from magazine publication to final editions, allowing readers to discover what Stevenson wrote, and how this hugely popular writer responded to the burgeoning literary market of the late nineteenth century. The project began in 2009 and is due to conclude in 2020, with the first wave of volumes appearing 2011–13.
