The Transformative Power of the Arts in Victorian and Edwardian Culture and Society / 58e Congrès de la SAES, atelier de la SFEVE, Utopia(s) and Revolution(s)

This volume gathers papers given at the Société Française d’Études Victoriennes et Edouardiennes annual conference ‘The Transformative Power of the Arts in Victorian and Edwardian Culture and Society’, which was held at Université Paul-Valéry Montpellier 3 on 1–3 March 2018, convened by EMMA (Études Montpelliéraines du Monde Anglophone). The 10 articles show the influence of society over the arts as well as the transformative power which the arts exerted over Victorian and Edwardian culture and society at large. They showcase the new technologies as well as the industrial and scientific processes which attracted Victorian and Edwardian writers and artists and which were represented in many of their works. The volume also means to see if the circulation between science, technology and the arts had an impact on the circulation between the arts themselves, or if the changes in the society and culture were reflected somehow in the dialogue between the arts, especially at a time when new art forms were emerging and processes of hybridization and cross-fertilization were indeed at work. In other words, analysing the transformative power of the arts in Victorian and Edwardian times means to highlight the social as well as the intermedial dynamics of the arts and to give a somewhat renewed vision of the period. The volume also gathers three articles from the SFEVE workshop at the SAES conference in Université Paris Nanterre (Paris X) held in June 2018, focusing on ‘Utopia(s) and Revolution(s)’.
