Saluting the 2012 Boz Bicentennial, this panel explores Charles Dickens's art of characterization in the novels and stories.

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.
