The free online conference `Dickens's World' takes place this
Wednesday and Thursday - don't miss out on your chance to register!

Register for free now at http://dickensworld.wordpress.com/

Video addresses will be presented by:

David Paroissien: Looking Back and Looking Forward: Shifting
Perspectives in Dickens's Fiction

John Bowen: Beginning the World

Anne Stiles: Psychology, gender, and the brain in Dickens scholarship

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.

We're delighted to announce that the following papers will be featured
at the upcoming online conference Dickens' World. These will be freely
available and open for discussion:

'Dickens on the Chinese Screen', Ting Guo

'Global Dickens', John O. Jordan

'The Manly Mind? Revisiting the Victorian 'Sex in Brain' Debate', Rob

'Testing a Civilisation: Charles Dickens on the American Penitentiary
system', David Wilson

'Victorian Print Culture, Journalism and the Novel', Matthew Rubery
