The Dickens Society is pleased to request abstracts for our annual Symposium, to be held July 30-August 1, 2018 in Tübingen, Germany, a university city located just 30 minutes from Stuttgart, between the Swabian Alb and the Black Forest. Founded in 1477, Tübingen is one of the oldest universities in Germany. The picturesque old town is intact, with late medieval university buildings and half-timbered houses as well as Hölderlin tower, where the German poet lived, by the Neckar River.

 

The research context at Tübingen links literary studies with linguistics. Hence, for 2018 we invite papers on Dickens and language, which may include (but is not limited to): Dickens and dialect, Dickens and figurative language, Dickens and body language, Dickens and genre, Dickens and the slipping signifier, Dickens and cultural or corpus linguistics, Dickens and foreign language, Dickens and dissonance, Dickens and rhetoric, Dickens in translation, Dickens and onomastics, Dickens and orality, Dickens and the language of emotion. In the traditional spirit of the Symposium, proposals for any topic related to Dickens’s life or work are also welcome.
