The newly-launched Journal of Juvenilia Studies (JJS) invites submissions. The JJS is a peer-reviewed journal published by the International Society for Literary Juvenilia (ISLJ) and hosted by the University of Alberta Libraries through their web hosting service. The ISLJ was established in June 2017, during the Fifth International Conference in Literary Juvenilia, which was held at the University of North Alabama. The first issue will be launched at the Sixth International Conference and AGM, 5-8 July 2018, which will be held at the University of Durham.
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.
