Dickensians!

    Here is the program for the annual winter conference of the
University of California Dickens Project.  Its unique feature is
that the papers are written by graduate students from
universities participating in the Project, and the responses are
made by faculty from affiliated institutions.  Discussions fol-
low, of course, and the aim is to give emerging scholars and
critics in the field their first participatory experience in a
multi-university, professional conference.
