2017 grantees Ian Duncan and Nathalie Vanfasse have launched a blog to showcase the findings of their FBF-funded project, "Form Across Literature and the Sciences in Victorian Britain". Featuring the full program of their May 2018 workshop, the site also includes book reviews,drafts of work-in-progress, pre-circulated papers, and other resources. The research blog as a whole examines  the porousness and impermeability of conceptual, disciplinary and methodological boundaries, with a focus on English and Anglophone studies. It has been officially acknowledged with an ISSN number by the Bibliothèque Nationale de France.
