The Dickens Universe 2014
WHERE: College Eight and Porter - University of California, Santa Cruz
WHEN: Sunday August 3 - Friday August 8, 2014 (departures on Sat. morning)
WHAT: Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens (we recommend the 2004 Penguin Classics edition).
HOW: Online registration will open in January, 2014. Consortium member graduate students and faculty will begin registration on March 1, using separate online forms.
HOW MUCH: Look here to see what it costs for Universe participants.
WHO: Anyone can attend; you need not be a scholar, but you do need to read the book before August and have an appreciation and curiosity about Charles Dickens, his work and his time. However, SMOKERS take note: UCSC is now a smoke-free campus, so smoking is not allowed anywhere on campus, indoors or out.
BONUS: Don't forget to visit the Our Mutual Friend Scholarly Pages for more information about the book.
HUH?: Details about the conference will appear on our web site beginning in late Fall, but you may always seek more information by contacting the Project (dpj at ucsc.edu). You can also see a report on the 2013 Dickens Universe here.
