The Dickens Project will be offering a weeklong seminar to any Victorianist faculty and graduate students whose colleges and universities are not currently institutional members of the Dickens Project Consortium. The Nineteenth-Century Seminar takes place from July 14-19, in conjunction with the annual Dickens Universe conference, at UC Santa Cruz. Applications are due March 31st. Please see our website https://dickens.ucsc.edu/universe/seminars/19Csem.html for details.
The Dickens Universe is a unique cultural event that brings together scholars, teachers, students, and members of the general public for a week of stimulating discussion and festive social activity on the beautiful Santa Cruz campus of the University of California—all focused on one or two Victorian novels, usually (but not always) one by Charles Dickens. In 2019, the Universe will feature Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens.
