In 2020, the 150-year anniversary of Dickens’s death, the annual Dickens Society Symposium will take place in Bloomsbury, Dickens’s home for periods of time and where he produced some of his most memorable novels. Organised by Royal Holloway, University of London, in collaboration with the Charles Dickens Museum (formerly the Dickens House Museum), the anniversary Symposium seeks to explore what Dickens means to so many people across the world and why he has meant so much to diverse publics over time.
Proposals from scholars, independent researchers, and graduate students on the theme of ‘Our Dickens: Dickens and his Publics’ are invited; as is customary at Dickens Society symposia, proposals on other aspects of Dickens’s life and work will also be considered. One page (250-300 word) abstracts for papers deliverable in 20 minutes, plus 150-word bios, may be submitted Sept. 1 – Nov. 1, 2019
