The Victorian Popular Fiction Association was founded in 2009 by Greta Depledge and Jane Jordan. The Association is committed to the revival of interest in understudied popular writers, literary genres and other cultural forms. 

The Victorian Popular Fiction Association holds an annual conference which is recognised as an important event on the annual conference circuit and offers a friendly and invigorating opportunity for established academics and postgraduate students to share their current research. The conference is in its eighth year and is co-organised by Janine Hatter, Helena Ifill and Jane Jordan.

In addition to the annual conference, we also run regular seminars and study days, and plan to start our own peer-reviewed journal.

If you are interested in getting involved, please take a look at our membership page. The annual subscription for members is £20 and just £5 for students.
