The Australasian Victorian Studies Association aims to promote the activities and research of scholars in Victorian literary, historical, and cultural studies, including art history, architecture, politics, popular and print culture, and, increasingly, considerations of 'the Victorian' beyond the chronological period, and beyond the geographical centre of British Victorian Studies.

Since its first conference in 1973, AVSA has provided a meeting place for scholars in Victorian Studies in the southern hemisphere. AVSA's membership is international, with a particular focus on Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Japan and Singapore. We also have strong links with associations in Britain and the United States.

AVSA conferences are held regularly, hosted by members around the region. The call for papers for the 2017 conference "Victorian Materialities" to be held at Deakin University (Melbourne) is now open until 27 February 2017. Our keynote speaker will be Alexis Easley (University of St Thomas). The 2016 conference was held in conjunction with the Australian Historical Association through Federation University.

AVSA publishes a web-based electronic journal: Australasian Journal of Victorian Studies (AJVS), which is edited by Meg Tasker.
For more information about the journal, please go to its home on the Open Journals page at the University of Sydney.
