Friends of the Dickens Forum,

	Yes, the 2012 anniversary celebrations are increasing.  Here
Maria Bachman <[log in to unmask]> is calling for papers for the 2012
Victorian Institute conference:
Call for Papers:  Victorians Institute
Charles Dickens: Past, Present, and Future

To help usher in the global celebration of his bicentenary in 2012, the 41st
annual conference of the Victorians Institute will focus rather broadly on

Dickensıs writings and their relevance to us today.  We are particularly
interested in interdisciplinary essays exploring the literary life and
legacy of Dickens in relation to science, economics, psychology, sociology,
philosophy, law, history, aesthetics, and theater and film adaptation.

Topics may include, but are not limited to:

Dickensıs Journalism
Dickens and the Literary Marketplace
Dickens and Mass Culture
Dickensian Friendships
Dickensian Scandals
The Dickens Circle
Catherine Dickens
Dickens and Science
