Subject: 2nd Call for Papers: "Dickens + the Victorians in the 1840s"

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

     I invite you to submit papers for a special session on Dickens
to be held at the Sixth Annual Central New York Conference on
Language and Literature, to be held at Cortland College of the State
University of New York, October 20-22, 1996.

     The topic will be "Dickens and the Victorians in the 1840s." The
1990s mark the 150th anniversary of a number of Dickens works--"The
Old Curiosity Shop" (1840-41), "Barnaby Rudge" (1841), "Martin
Chuzzlewit" (1843-44), the Christmas Books (1843-48), "Dombey and
Son" (1846-48), "The Life of Our Lord" (1849), "American Notes"
(1842). Our session will focus on papers dealing with Dickens'
achievement in the 1840s and on related writings of his American and
British contemporaries. It will allow us both to celebrate an
important phase in Dickens' career and to extend our consideration to
a broader range of works and authors of the period.

     Send abstracts or completed papers to: Kenneth M. Sroka,
Department of English, Canisius College, 2001 Main Street, Buffalo,
New York 14208. Deadline: July 1st. I can also be reached at
