New Issue of ’19’ on Dickens and Science

The new issue of 19: Interdisciplinary Studies in the Long Nineteenth Century is now available:
www.19.bbk.ac.uk

Guest edited by Holly Furneaux and Ben Winyard, this issue considers ‘Dickens and Science’ and features a range of papers from Dickens Day 2009.

Under consideration are Dickens’s myriad engagements with science, including medicine, psychology, forensics, evolutionary thought, paleontology, ecology, and contested practices such as mesmerism. Participating in the lively revision of earlier accounts of Dickens’s failure to understand and respond to science, this issue places Dickens at the heart of a peculiarly Victorian, deeply literary, appreciation of the imaginative potential of scientific discovery.
