> I'd like to focus attention on an upcoming NEH Summer Seminar for School Teachers, sponsored by the Dickens Project, funded by NEH, and directed by Prof. Marty Gould (Univ. of South Florida). Marty has directed several successful 4-week Summer Seminars for us and we're looking forward to this one, titled "Dickens: Hard Times and A Tale of Two Cities," taking place on the beautiful UCSC campus during the month of July.
> Taking an interdisciplinary, cultural-studies approach to literature, this NEH Summer Seminar considers Hard Times and A Tale of Two Cities in relation to historical events and contemporary concerns, literary influences and modern adaptations, Victorian social theory and current critical trends. Guest speakers will include Professors Sharon Weltman (LSU) and Kate Flint (USC), as well as Jon Varese, Director of Digital Initiatives for the Dickens Project.
