2014 Conference, University of Michigan–Ann Arbor
Committed to the support of graduate research in Victorian studies, MVSA funds a dissertation research award that is presented each spring at the annual meeting. The first-book prize, awarded in 2008 to Ivan Kreilkamp of Indiana University, and 2009 to William McKelvy of Washington University–St. Louis, recognized outstanding work by newer scholars in the field of Victorian studies.
We welcome donations to help support our fellowships (the Arnstein Dissertation Prize and the Burgan Prize), our speakers (the Stedman Fund), and our general fund. To make a contribution to MVSA, visit the Membership page for information on submitting donations via PayPal or check.
MVSA maintains profiles of current officers and board members on the Contact page, and a detailed record of Past Officers and Board Members, part of the Archives section of the website. The current organization By-Laws (as well as 2013, 2012, 1995, and 1977 versions) are available as a PDF download.
