Griffith University, Brisbane, April 15, 2012
Keynote Speaker: Regenia Gagnier (Exeter)
In conjunction with the Australasian Victorian Studies Association conference (“Victorian Vocabularies" April 11th-14th 2012), “Global Dickens” is a day-long conference that will explore how Dickens has been received, adapted, imitated, or syncretised outside Britain. What forms of intersexuality have been generated with indigenous cultural forms? What is the role of Dickens’s Britain in the imaginary of other cultures?
We welcome proposals for 20-minute papers that consider any aspect of this theme. Please submit a 150-250 word abstract no later than September 30th, 2011 to firstname.lastname@example.org Any queries regarding the conference can be directed to the same address.
