This collection of important new research in nineteenth-century media history represents some salient, recent developments in the field. Taking as its theme the way the media serve to define identities - national, ethnic, professional, gender, and textual - the volume addresses serials in the UK, the US, and Australia. High culture rubs shoulders with the popular press, text with image, and feminist periodicals with masculine, gay, and domestic serials. Theory and history combine in research by scholars of international repute.
