Histories for the Many (History in Popular Cultures)
- The Victorian Family Magazine and Popular Representations of the Past - the Leisure Hour 1852-1870
Doris Lechner examines the contribution of illustrated family magazines to Victorian historical culture. How, by whom, for whom, and with which intentions was history used within this popular medium? How were class, gender, age, religion, and space debated? How were academic and popular approaches to the past linked to the materiality of the medium? Lechner's focus is on the evangelical Leisure Hour, with comparisons to the London Journal, Good Words, and Cornhill. The study's approach to the serialization of history in text and image combines periodical studies and book history with concepts from cultural studies, sociology, and narratology.
