Free Online Dickens Conference
On the 7th and 8th of March 2012, Wiley-Blackwell will be hosting a free online conference to celebrate the bicentenary of Charles Dickens.
•Video addresses by prominent Dickens scholars
•Free scholarly papers with discussion forum for each
•Reading Room with free articles and book chapters from Wiley-Blackwell
The event provides an opportunity for an international group of scholars to discuss the work of one of the world’s most important authors. The emphasis is on illustrating the many ways in which Dickens influenced, and was influenced by, his contact with other countries. More broadly, we hope the conference will encourage online discussion about the social, cultural and technological milieu in which (and of which) Dickens wrote. Log on to the discussion whenever it suits your schedule, everyone is welcome to participate!
