Catégorie : Book Reviews

This section features a selection of francophone academic publications on Victorian literature and science which might help address the question of forms, as is the purpose of the France-Berkeley project this year. As several online academic societies already offer comprehensive resources on recent British and American criticism in that field, we have chosen to restrict our list to the works published in a francophone context, as they might not have acquired the same visibility outside this circle. It is also worth noting that some of these works cover a longer period than the 19th century and might come handy for students or academics who have a broader interest in the connections between literature and science.
We would also be pleased to receive suggestions; feel free to contact one of the administrators of this page if you would like to share references you might have come across during your own research.
