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.

The Tenth Annual Wenshan International Conference: The City and Literature: A Geography of Culture and Space

updated: 
Tuesday, August 10, 2010 - 3:39am
English Department, National Chengchi University, Taipei, Taiwan

The reciprocal relationship of literature and the city reveals a complexity of urban life that has given rise to literary imagery and themes that define our understanding of the city. Novelists and poets contrast ideal cities with earthly cities, culture with nature, the mechanical with the organic, and the city with nature. These writers embrace our ambivalence toward the city that captivates but threatens, excites but intimidates, showing us the potential for greatness along with the fear of failure.

Cases and their Publics: Interdisciplinary and Transnational Perspectives on the Case Study Genre 26-28 Sept 2011

updated: 
Sunday, August 8, 2010 - 8:21pm
The University of Melbourne, Melbourne Australia

The interdisciplinary and transnational character of the case study genre has proved of enduring interest to all Western societies, particularly in relation to questions of the sexed self, sexual subjectivity and sexual pathologies.

This workshop will investigate the case study genre and its relationship to different publics and audiences, from patients to social reformers, from moral crusaders to literary audiences.

We are interested not only in how case studies were used to communicate the findings of individual researchers to other members of their academic disciplines - and beyond that, to broader publics - but also in how in turn case studies were used by a range of publics and audiences to refute and dispute academic knowledge.
