What does the Dickens Project mean to you?

Through its Board of Directors, the Friends of the Dickens Project contribute to the Project itself, as well as the Dickens Universe Conference. Their aim is to make the Universe a friendly, warm, and welcoming event where people of different ages and backgrounds come together to study and enjoy Victorian literature.


When you give to the Friends, you are helping to sustain the future of the Dickens Project. Your contribution goes beyond helping to bring world-renowned speakers attend the Dickens Universe each summer who would not otherwise be able to. It ensures that the Project can continue its important programs in graduate student professionalization and outreach to high school and community college teachers. 

Please consider making a gift today. You can make a donation here. 

Please consider making a donation of $50, $100, or whatever you can afford to help us meet our goals. Your contribution will make a real, lasting impact in the lives of Victorian literature enthusiasts and students of all ages and backgrounds.

Your support makes each of these experiences possible. We couldn’t do this without you! Thank you for your continued support and friendship.

With gratitude,

John O. Jordan
