Linguistic Field(s): Ling & Literature

Meeting Description:

This symposium will illustrate innovative approaches to both Dickens
Studies and studies of characterization more generally. Scholars from both
language and literature will present cutting-edge research that suggests a
mixed methods approach to the study of characterization in literary texts
and specifically the novels by Charles Dickens. The talks will address the
concept of character in the framework of cognitive poetics, Dickens's
characters in the context of popular culture, corpus methods and the tool
CLiC for literary texts, psycholinguistic methods to investigate the
reading process and the psychological reality of characters, Dickens and
book history, and the reading experience in the 19th century.
