Dickens Day: Dickens and History, Sat. 12th October 2013
You are warmly invited to Dickens Day, a lively annual event for Dickens fans, students and academics. Jointly run by the University of Leicester, Birkbeck, University of London, and the Dickens Fellowship, Dickens Day is now in its 27th year. This time we will be looking at how history, in all its manifold forms, features in Dickens’s life and work. The event is being held in Senate House, central London, on Saturday 12th October 2013. Speakers include Michael Slater, Ruth Livesey and Ruth Richardson. This event may be of particular interest to third years embarking on 3020, ‘Romantics to Victorians’, MA Victorian Studies and MA English Studies, postgraduates and staff. Hope to see you there!
