Call for Volunteers: Dickens Journals Online

Wednesday, August 3, 2011 - 7:30am
University of Buckingham

In six months' time, Britain will celebrate the bicentenary of arguably its greatest writer after Shakespeare, Charles Dickens (born 7th February 1812).

A huge swathe of Dickens's work as a writer, reporter, and magazine editor is embodied in the two weekly journals he edited for over twenty years, and in which he published hundreds of articles as well as some of his best known (and most widely studied) serial novels: Hard Times, A Tale of Two Cities, and Great Expectations. The rest of the contents – which were published anonymously – he helped commission, plan and meticulously copy-edit, from offices in Wellington Street, Covent Garden. A blue plaque opposite the Lyceum Theatre commemorates the spot.

Deadline Extended. NEMLA: March 15-18, 2012, Rochester, NY: Obscenity, Violence, and Humor in the Eighteenth-Century Novel

Monday, August 1, 2011 - 5:46pm
Kathleen Tamayo Alves

This panel will examine eighteenth-century British fiction and the relationship between violence, obscenity and humor. Novelists' use of the obscene joke is a tempered way to suppress the blurring lines of distinction between classes and to maintain hierarchy, a direct response to the changes in society and to the increasing sensitivity to vulgar subjects in polite society. This panel is interested in discovering how authors mobilize social anxiety through violence, obscenity and humor.

Digital Interpretation Roundtable

Monday, August 1, 2011 - 2:13pm
Digital Americanists Society

The Digital Americanists Society invites proposals for a roundtable about digital interpretation of nineteenth-century American literature or culture, to be proposed for the C19 Conference at the University of California, Berkeley, April 12-15, 2012. This roundtable will take up the C19 Program Committee's call to investigate how "the field's contours have been enlarged—or foreshortened—by the investigative tools offered by digital technologies." We seek scholars using digital tools—e.g. GIS, data mining, visualization, textual analysis, and other methods—to help them understand the nineteenth century. We are particularly interested in the ways that digital tools can lead scholars toward new interpretive insights into texts and other cultural objects.
