NVSA, the Northeast Victorian Studies Association, grew out of an interdisciplinary Five-College Victorian Studies Seminar, a group of scholars from Amherst, Hampshire, Mount Holyoke, Smith, and the Amherst Campus of the University of Massachusetts. The organization was formalized in 1975, its primary task being the sponsorship of a yearly conference in the Northeast US. The format of the annual conferences has remained a three-day conference, Friday afternoon through Sunday morning. Friday night always includes a reception and Saturday night a banquet and entertainment. The Saturday business lunch has over the years become a highlight with a lively debate over choosing the next year's conference topic.
The family of Sonya Rudikoff established a NVSA prize in 1999 for the best first book of the year in memory of Sonya, a long-time member of the organization.
