Call for Papers: Dickens Society panel at the Nineteenth-Century Studies 
Association (NCSA)

Abstracts due November 1, 2015

Conference April 13-16, 2016 in Lincoln, NE

The Dickens Society is pleased to invite abstracts for a special session 
on Charles Dickens at the 2016 NCSA Conference in Lincoln, NE. The theme 
for the NCSA meeting is “The New and the Novel in the 19^th Century / 
New Directions in 19^th -century Studies.” In other words, it is tailor 
made for scholars of Dickens, the self-proclaimed “Inimitable” of 
Victorian literature.

We welcome proposals on newness and innovation in Dickens’s fiction and 
journalism; on his transformative role as an editor, philanthropist, and 
social reformer; on new directions in Dickens studies in our remarkable 
age of digital archives, corpus analysis, and distant reading; or on any 
other aspect of Dickens’s life and work that suits the broader 
conference theme. Please submit 250-word abstracts and 1-page CVs to 
Sean Grass [log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]> for 
consideration. All proposals will be acknowledged, and accepted 
presenters will be notified in December 2015.
