Undisciplining the Victorian Classroom: A New Set of Publications!

We are pleased to announce the publication of a large new cache of materials by Undisciplining the Victorian Classroom ( These include lesson plans, peer-reviewed syllabi, and Zoomcasts, i.e., recorded interviews with colleagues in the field doing important anti-racist work.

As a digital humanities project that seeks to reimagine how we teach Victorian Studies through a positive, race-conscious lens, we have been working for the last six months with a team of collaborators, from across institutions and ranks, to generate this new content.

Lesson Plans: Organized in clusters around specific themes to provide instructors with recommended texts (primary and secondary), critical questions, and pedagogical approaches that can be used in the classroom, these lesson plans help us reimagine Victorian studies as we continue to undiscipline ourselves and our field.

Syllabi: These peer-reviewed syllabi seek to challenge and expand traditional ideas of Victorian Studies. Each syllabus includes a short introduction that expounds upon its critical framing and makes explicit how an undisciplined approach to teaching Victorian Studies informs course design, the selection of materials, assignment construction, and pedagogical practices.

Zoomcasts: In 30-40 minute conversations with guest colleagues, we explore how we can grow together as a community of scholars and learn from one another by discussing our classroom practices and reflecting on our processes of learning (and un-learning) as teachers. Please feel free to browse our site and follow us on Twitter (@UndiscVC). We hope you enjoy what we’ve created!
