About the Authors
  • Newly commissioned essays by leading scholars offer a comprehensive and authoritative overview of the diversity, range and impact of the newspaper and periodical press in nineteenth-century Britain. Essays range from studies of periodical formats in the nineteenth century - reviews, magazines and newspapers - to accounts of individual journalists, many of them eminent writers of the day. The uneasy relationship between the new 'profession' of journalism and the evolving profession of authorship is investigated, as is the impact of technological innovations, such as the telegraph, the typewriter and new processes of illustration. Contributors go on to consider the transnational and global dimensions of the British press and its impact in the rest of the world. As digitisation of historical media opens up new avenues of research, the collection reveals the centrality of the press to our understanding of the nineteenth century.

    • Illustrates the richness and scope of current research on nineteenth-century print media, and the research potential offered by digitisation
    • Offers insights into the diversity, range and impact of the newspaper and periodical press in nineteenth-century Britain
    • Provides examples of interdisciplinary approaches to the study of nineteenth-century newspapers and periodicals
