British Settler Emigration in Print, 1832-1877 examines the literature of Victorian settler emigration. During the Victorian period, an unprecedented number of emigrants left Britain to settle in America, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand. It argues that popular Victorian periodicals played a key and overlooked role in imagining and moderating this dramatic historical experience. Part 1 focuses on settler emigration genres that featured withinmainstream, middle-class periodicals, including emigrant voyage texts, emigration themed Christmas stories, and serialized novels about settlement. These genres are domestic and reassuring, and thus of a differentcharacter from the adventure stories often associated with Victorian empire. The second part of the book examines a feminist and radical periodical emigration literature that often challenged dominant settler ideologies. British Settler Emigration in Print also presents fresh readings of canonical texts by authors including Charles Dickens and Anthony Trollope, which are situated alongside the emigration genres.
