(p.179) Conclusion
British Settler Emigration in Print, 1832–1877

Jude Piesse

Oxford University Press

The conclusion restates the book’s thesis about the Victorian periodical’s capacity to register and mediate settler emigration and reviews its wider implications. It argues that the significant differences between settler emigration texts and the adventure literature of high imperialism should cause scholars to redraw the cultural map of Victorian empire as a whole. Furthermore, it proposes that intersections between British periodical emigration texts and a broader field of Anglo settler literature require us to factor new elements of transnational and global circulation into our understanding of Australian, New Zealand, American, Canadian, and British literatures. The conclusion also contends that periodical settler emigration literature informed a diverse constellation of Victorian cultural and ideological formations, beyond those specifically concerned with empire and global relations. These include concepts of national identity, the formation of feminist and radical imaginaries, and the thematic range and affective qualities of Victorian novels.
