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 these responses tell us about ourselves, our relationship to Victorianism, and our attitudes toward Dickens? Please send abstracts and a brief CV to Bianca.Tredennick@oneonta.edu
