Literature cannot be the business of a woman's life, and it ought not to be. The more she is engaged in her proper duties, the less leisure will she have for it even as an accomplishment and a recreation.  

   --- Robert Southey to Charlotte Brontë, 1837 

Invited keynote: (provisional) Professor Alexis Easley, St Thomas University, Minnesota.

Richard Carstone in Bleak House declares, "I have learned a lesson now, sir. It was a hard one, but you shall be assured, indeed, that I have learned it." Dickens characters still resonate with the modern reader, and their struggles and lessons learned reach readers on both an emotional and practical level. This panel invites abstracts exploring the various lessons Dickens tries to impart through his novels. How are these lessons situated in their contemporary historic/socio-economic milieu? Are they still valuable today, and if so, how do they translate to our modern concerns, values and sensitivities? Papers are invited to examine the expected and unexpected lessons in Charles Dickens' works.
