The Shandean

The Shandean™ is a scholarly journal dedicated to the life, work and times of Laurence Sterne (1713-1768).

Founded in 1989, it has earned an unequalled reputation for promoting research into all aspects of Sterne’s life and writing, foregrounding new discoveries in the field, and illuminating many aspects of Sterne’s reception, with a particular strength in material and visual culture.

The Shandean™ is published by The International Laurence Sterne Foundation, and edited by:

* Peter de Voogd, University of Utrecht, general editor
* Jessy van Geloven, Amsterdam, business editor & webmaster
* W.B. Gerard, Auburn University at Montgomery †
* Paul Goring, Norwegian University of Science and Technology
* M-C. Newbould, University of Cambridge
* Brian Michael Norton, California State University, book review editor
* Helen Williams, Northumbria University

The Editors aim to expand the reach and the appeal of The Shandean’s vital work to promote its academic status as a forum for innovative, peer-reviewed research. Continuing to print scholarly essays and notes addressing aspects of Sterne’s life and work, The Shandean also invites discussion of Sterne within the broader contexts of eighteenth-century literature and culture.
