Our conference theme explores Victorian concepts,representations, and experiences of community. From Chartist organizations to the Salvation Army, from women’s colleges to Mechanics’ Institutes, from Evangelical congregations to pagan gatherings, and including rituals ranging from family reading and hymn singing to maypole dancing, rugby matches, and croquet games, Victorians sought out “combinations” that were political, religious, domestic, social, artistic, academic, and/or erotic.
