Dickens Quarterly - articles required
“Dickens and His Publics”
This Special Issue of Dickens Quarterly, projected for March 2024, opens the pages of the journal to all of Dickens’s publics—that is, to the many different kinds of readers and writers who engage meaningfully with Charles Dickens.
The editors are especially interested in personal, reflective readings and analyses of Dickens. We seek excellent writing that offers new and invigorating ways of doing criticism, including subjective forms of criticism or critical/creative hybrids, and essays that bring Dickens into relevance with our own time. This Special Issue hopes to open emancipatory spaces within the field of Dickens studies and in literary studies generally. The editors are hospitable to essays which challenge conventional scholarly expectations, in the project of locating what Ross Posnock has called “a more spiritual, less cognitive and linguistic approach to art.”
We welcome contributions from all readers of Dickens: Victorianists, Dickens experts, non-specialists, early- and late-career academics, creative writers, students at every level of literary study, and so-called “lay” readers.
