The Research Society for Victorian Periodicals (RSVP) will be holding its annual conference at Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, Virginia from 14–16 September 2007. Its theme will be "Time and the Victorian Press." Please direct all queries about local arrangements to David Latané at For further information about RSVP and the conference, please consult our website:

The Research Society for Victorian Periodicals is very pleased to award the annual Robert Colby Scholarly Book Prize for a work published the preceding year which has made a significant contribution to the study of nineteenth-century periodicals. The prize was made possible by a generous gift by Vineta Colby in honor of Robert Colby, a long and devoted member of RSVP and a major scholar in the field of Victorian periodicals. Last year's prize winners were Linda K. Hughes for Graham R.: Rosamund Marriot Watson, Woman of Letters (Athens: Ohio University Press), and Peter Morton for "The Busiest Man in England": Grant Allen and the Writing Trade, 1875–1900 (New York and Houndsmills: Palgrave Macmillan). If you published a book in 2006 that you would like to have considered for the 2007 Robert Colby Scholarly Book Prize, please contact Anne Humpherys,
