IU-Bloomington Victorian Studies


Recommended Posts

Can somebody from/considering IU-Bloomington talk a little bit about their program? How is the health of their Victorian Studies program? They of course are considered one of the best in that field, but they don't seem to have placed many Victorianists in the past few years.

This might be because they haven't graduated any in the past while, or because some decided not to pursue TT jobs or something like that. I'm not necessarily looking for anything negative. This could also be a good place to talk about what a great program IU is, too :)

I'm not a Victorianist, but I know that they lost Andrew Miller to JHU a year or so ago, alongside Mary Favret (who is a Romanticist, but still a very significant loss). Obviously it remains a strong department for Victorian Studies, but I imagine they're doing a little bit of rebuilding right now.

I'm a Victorianist undergrad at IU, so my experiences are really limited to the professors I've had/I've interacted with. Professor Kreilkamp and Professor Morgan are amazing, both working on interesting topics. Professor Kriegel is probably the one you would want to connect with. She's the head of the Victorian Studies program I believe, and she would be able to match you with faculty that are working on issues that you're interested in.
