The 2020 Dickens Universe begins on Sunday, July 26 and ends Saturday, August 1. Faculty and grad students should arrive Saturday afternoon, July 25 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.

Please note that sessions marked with an asterisk are open only to members of the Dickens Project Consortium.

The schedule will also be available on Sched.com and via their mobile app.  (Last updated 12/03/2019)
