The Journal of Victorian Culture Online have recently published a series of blog posts detailing what was said at the plenary panel of BAVS 2011. The topic was 'What is the Value of Victorian Studies?' and discussion ranged over how best to disseminate research, the role of the university post 9k tuition fees, what publishers want from nineteenth-century scholars, the future of the academic job market, and the uneasy place of postgraduates in all of the above.
For anyone interested in BAVS but who couldn't make it to this year's conference, Jim Mussell (University of Birmingham) has kindly catalogued all of the tweets relating to the event. You can find them here.
