CFP: 2024 Dickens Society Symposium: “Dickens, Context, and Co-occurrence” (Deadline: 1/15/2024)

Symposium: “Dickens, Context, and Co-occurrence”
Dickens Society
University of Birmingham: Birmingham, England
15-18 July 2024

CFP Deadline: 15 January 2024

The Dickens Society is delighted to welcome you to the University of Birmingham!

The theme of the 2024 symposium will be “Dickens, Context and Co-occurrence.” The organizers invite you to think of the various contexts that Dickens’s works are set in, connect to, and imagine. Contexts are where things co-occur – with various effects.

Topics of papers can cover Dickens and the context of theatre, the world of fashion, or the natural environment; Dickens and changing contexts through travel, translation, and time; contexts of family and friends; you may also want to think about the relationship between real world contexts and the textual contexts of the words on the page. As is the case every year, proposals on other aspects of Dickens’s life and works are welcome, too.

Abstract Submission:

Please submit your abstract of 300 words (maximum) and bio of 150 words (maximum) to the organisers Michaela Mahlberg and Caroline Radcliffe at dickens2024@contacts.bham.ac.uk.

Deadline: 15 January 2024.
