Panel Title: Global Dickens (panel sponsored by the Dickens Society)

Chair: Diana Archibald (University of Massachusetts Lowell)


World-wide interest in Charles Dickens experienced a resurgence during the bicentennial in 2012 when scholars and enthusiasts across the globe engaged in celebrations, interrogations, and encounters with the Inimitable. Throughout the last two decades a few works of interest have been published on global Dickens, and this appears to be a growing topic
of interest both for Dickensians and other scholars, especially those researching and writing in postcolonial and cultural studies.

This panel, organized by the Dickens Society, welcomes proposals for papers on any aspect of the topic of global Dickens, including reception of Dickens outside of the Imperial center, reimaginings of Dickens in global contexts, the fluidity of influence, and more. Of particular interest are papers that discuss how the digital humanities intersect with
global Dickens studies.

Please submit proposals (300 words maximum) and a short bio. to Prof. Diana Archibald at Diana_Archibald@uml.edu.

Deadline: September 30, 2015
