Dickens Studies Annual

Dickens Studies Annual: Essays on Victorian Fiction was founded in 1970, the centennial anniversary of Dickens's death, and has been published since 1980 by AMS Press in cooperation with the Ph.D Program in English of the City University of New York, and in association with the Graduate Center, CUNY, and Queens College, CUNY. Besides presenting articles exploring the wide range of Dickens's interests and talents, Dickens Studies Annual also includes essays on other mid- and late-nineteenth century novelists and on the history and aesthetics of the period's fiction. In addition, each volume contains a substantial review article examining recent scholarship on Dickens, and Dickens Studies Annual occasionally publishes surveys of work on other authors, such as the Brontes, Thackeray, Trollope, George Eliot, Carroll, Hardy, Gaskell, and Collins, as well as review essays considering specialized studies of subjects in Victorian fiction. The editors seek to offer essays of "the most diverse kinds," those employing innovative as well as traditional approaches.

Currently edited by Professor Stanley Friedman (Queens College, CUNY), President Edward Guiliano (New York Institute of Technology), Professor Anne Humpherys (The Graduate Center, CUNY and Lehman College, CUNY), Dean Natalie McKnight (Boston University), Professor Caroline Reitz (John Jay College of Criminal Justice, CUNY and The Graduate Center, CUNY), and Professor Michael Timko (Queens College, CUNY and The Graduate Center, CUNY).

It welcomes essay- and monograph-length contributions on Dickens and other Victorian novelists and on the aesthetics of Victorian fiction. All manuscripts should be double-spaced and should follow the documentation format described in the most recent MLA Style Manual. The author's name should appear only on the cover-page. An editorial decision can usually be reached more quickly if two copies of the essay are submitted. If a manuscript is accepted for publication, the author will be asked to provide an abstract and also a disk containing the final version of the essay. The preferred editions for citation from Dickens's works are the Clarendon and the Norton Critical when available, otherwise the Oxford Illustrated or the Penguin.
