_Concentric: Literary and Cultural Studies_
Vol. 37 No. 2 (to be published September 2011)
Deadline for Submissions: February 15, 2011

In his "Theses on the Philosophy of History," Walter Benjamin famously reads the Paul Klee painting _Angelus Novus_, not as a "New Angel" in keeping with the original title of this watercolor, but as an "Angel of History." Benjamin describes the angel as flying backwards (and thus looking at the past) toward the future, blown by a huge storm. This storm, Benjamin says, is what we call progress.

Saluting the 2012 Boz Bicentennial, this panel explores Charles Dickens's art of characterization in the novels and stories. The ability of Dickens's readers to visualize figures in OT, CC, DC, TTC, and GE, for example, links his oeuvre to the allegorical tradition of Spenser, Bunyan, Hogarth and Perrault. Papers analyzing Dickens's adaptation of allegory in his character portrayals are as welcome as those analyzing the way particular characters have been further adapted by the stage, cinema, and visual arts.
