The 2017 Dickens Universe begins on Sunday, July 30 and ends Saturday, August 5. Faculty and grad students should arrive Saturday afternoon, July 29 for a round of important meetings to be held through Sunday morning.
You'll notice from the schedule that the program is very full, although you have a couple of free afternoons and a free evening, to go into town, or explore the beautiful campus.. We also don't expect you to attend everything, so pace yourself.
Some of the programs are only available to faculty and grad students representing our consortium schools. Those items have asterisks in the schedule. If you have a question, please contact the office.
Scholars who are not from consortium schools may share their research in the Nineteenth-Century Seminar. There is no additional charge for the seminar, but you must register and submit supplemental materials by the deadline.
We update the schedule as we get more details, so check back often to see what's happening.
