Friends Faculty Fellows

We are thrilled to announce the new Friends of the Dickens Project Faculty Fellowship program. The aim of the fellowship is threefold: first, to give faculty members an opportunity to conceptualize and present their research to an enthusiastic public audience; second, to provide our Friends with a chance to get to know/interact with more Dickens Project faculty members; and third, to offer an opportunity to learn more about current research in 19th-century studies that may not fit into the purview of Dickens Universe programming. The Santa Cruz Public Libraries provide support for this program.
