Show Summary Details


The quantity of affordable print increased dramatically during the 19th century to satisfy the demands of the first mass reading public. Nearly everyone was exposed to print of some kind during an era in which over 25,000 different journals were available to the growing reading public. The term “journalism” first entered the English lexicon in the 1830s and encompassed a wide range of formats, from the quarterly review to the monthly magazine to the daily newspaper. The discourse of journalism became increasingly influential throughout the 19th century. Since the earliest attempts to navigate the voluminous periodical archives in the 1950s, scholars have aspired to produce a complete map of the diverse forms of print consumed by readers during this period. This entry presents a guide to the major resources and scholarship for the study of Victorian journalism.
