Overview

Subjugated Knowledges examines the relation of print and culture in the nineteenth century and establishes a high level of interdependence between literature, journalism and gender. Laurel Brake scrutinizes the cultural politics and production of specific Victorian magazines and explores ways in which authorship is constructed in various forms of biography and periodical space is gendered. The book is divided into three sections - on literature and journalism, gendered space, and biography and authorship - in which the professionalization of critics and journals, women's magazines and the Savoy, and a wide range of authors, editors, journalists, publishers and journals are examined. A fascinating introductory chapter on 'Criticism and the Victorian Periodical Press' maps the territory. Subjugated Knowledges is an absorbing account of the cultural formations of Victorian journalism. It will be of interest to all students of Victorian literature and history, and of media, cultural and gender studies.
