Dickens at 201
44th Annual Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
March 21-24, 2013
Boston, Massachusetts
Host Institution: Tufts University
This seminar seeks papers that explore the state of Dickens studies in the wake of his bicentennial. How do we explain Dickens's ongoing resonance? What are the new directions in Dickens studies? Which old directions in Dickens studies should be revitalized? How is Dickens being adapted and responded to in contemporary literature and popular culture, and what do those responses tell us about ourselves, our relationship to Victorianism, and our attitudes toward Dickens? Please send abstracts and a brief CV to Bianca Tredennick at Bianca.Tredennick@oneonta.edu. Deadline for abstracts: September 30, 2012.
