Lady's Magazine Index

The Lady’s Magazine: Understanding the Emergence of a Genre was a two-year, Leverhulme-funded project that has provided a freely accessible and fully annotated index of the magazine’s contents from its first issue in 1770 to the launch of its new series in 1818. The database is accompanied by a series of publications in which the project team interpret the discoveries made and the trends observed throughout the collation of the data for the index.

In the database below, titles of articles are accompanied by author names or pseudonyms, with attributions made where possible. Since the titles of articles are often misleading (an article purporting to be about women’s dress might make an impassioned plea for reforms in female education, for instance) content is also tagged by genre, key stylistic features and prominent keywords (marriage, education, politics, for example).

You can filter the index by searching for a title, author or subgenre, or by filtering from the genre or volume drop down lists. You can also search for a keyword anywhere in the entries. Please note, that to clear the filter or search you have to manually clear the selection and click 'search' with the fields left blank.

For further information on how the index was created and the terminology it uses, and to download the data as an excel file, please see the project website here: www.kent.ac.uk/english/ladys-magazine/research-data.
