George Eliot Scholars

The George Eliot Scholars site is a work in progress. (We will launch officially on December 31, 2020). If you experience any issues or have feedback for how we can improve, please let us know at or write directly to Dr Bev at

Increase the impact of your work and make it available to others eager to read it by sharing it here.

George Eliot Scholars is a free online resource devoted to making scholarship about George Eliot accessible worldwide and created by the George Eliot Archive team at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln.

George Eliot Scholars provides a free digital commons where writers can contribute articles, monographs, book chapters, theses, dissertations, conference papers, and reviews of books about George Eliot while discovering the work of other researchers.

We've modeled our endeavor on the MLA's Humanities Commons (CORE), but for Eliot-related publications exclusively. Unlike ResearchGate or Academia, we are a non-commercial digital repository created by scholars for scholars.

No registration is required to view the materials published on the George Eliot Scholars website, although you will need to register here to contribute your work.

Those who contribute retain the copyright as authors of their own materials (unless you agree to a CC license) and may withdraw permission to publish at any time with thirty days' notice.

The Scholars website supplements the George Eliot Archivea repository of public domain documents on the author. It also adds to the newer critical resources provided by another sister site, the George Eliot Review Online, a digital archive of more than 50 years’ worth of the peer-reviewed journal published by our partner, the George Eliot Fellowship. We encourage you to browse these affiliated websites for more information on Eliot's life and works.
