Wiley-Blackwell held a free online conference in association with the British Council Dickens 2012 initiative to mark the 200th anniversary of Dickens’s birth.
The conference involved an international group of scholars who discussed the work of one of the world’s most important authors. The emphasis was on illustrating the many ways in which Dickens influenced, and was influenced by, his contact with other countries. More broadly, we hope the conference will encourage further online discussion about the social, cultural and technological milieu in which (and of which) Dickens wrote. The conference has now closed by commentary is still open and everyone is welcome to participate!
