A Collection

02.07.17 Proposal Presentation

The topic I will be exploring for my project is victoriana: articles from the Victorian period.

I'll essentially be making an online museum of things from and about the Victorian era that interest me. Because base level academic learning pertaining to the Victorian era is often bland, this collection of media objects will aim to reveal that the disparity between modern society and Victorian society isn't so large after all.
