About the Project
The Dickens Project is a scholarly consortium devoted to promoting the study and enjoyment of the life, time and work of Charles Dickens. Concerned with these simultaneously historic and modern issues, The Dickens Project consists of faculty and graduate students from the eight University of California campuses as well as from other major American and international universities.
The Universe and Beyond
Every summer in the redwoods of UC Santa Cruz, Charles Dickens scholars and enthusiasts gather for one week to discover how Victorian fiction lives on in our contemporary world. An academic conference, book club, summer camp, and reunion of friends, the Dickens Universe welcomes faculty, students, and members of our global community.
