The 2023 Dickens Universe dates have not been confirmed. We hope the conference will begin on Sunday, July 23 and end Saturday, July 29. If this is the case, faculty and grad students should arrive Saturday afternoon, July 22 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.

The schedule will also be available on Sched.com and via their mobile app.  (Last updated 08/29/2022)
