Welcome to THE OSCHOLARS, a website for the exchange of information on research, publications and productions concerning Oscar Wilde and his Worlds. We are committed to free, open access, with no restrictions on downloading, although we request citation and linking where appropriate.  Submissions are welcome, especially offers to review.

THE OSCHOLARS was founded in 2001 as a simple e-newsletter on a website provided by Goldsmiths College, University of London.  From June 2002 to October 2003, and from October 2006 to December 2007 our issues were housed at, courtesy Patrick O’Sullivan. THE OSCHOLARS was then re-established in ampler form at, where it engendered a family of journals devoted to different aspects of the culture of the fin de siècle; and material published up to March 2010 can be found at With the departure of our webmaster in 2010, the group was dissolved and many of the pages were removed and links broken.  In the autumn of 2012, THE OSCHOLARS was re-established on this WordPress site, and pre-2012 material is gradually being transferred here.

Use the titles in the header to take you to our various sections.

Good reading!
