Description: 

22nd Annual Dickens Symposium, "Interdisciplinary Dickens" Co-Sponsored by the Dickens Society and The Center for Interdisciplinary Teaching & Learning (CITL) at CGS, Boston University

Charles Dickens was the ultimate interdisciplinary thinker. The encyclopedic quality of his writing, his incorporation of characters from all classes and walks of life, his genius at being “a special correspondent for posterity,” and his interest in reforms in prisons, the treatment of the insane and urban design all result in works that reflect on a wide range of disciplines and that can be effectively illuminated by interdisciplinary approaches. Yet these approaches are complicated by the fact that Dickens’s career coincided with the emergence of modern disciplines of knowledge, and the nature and definitions of these disciplines has shifted. 

Accommodations: On-campus and off-campus accommodations are available.  Reasonably priced on-campus accommodations are in an apartment style residence hall and consist of 4 single-occupancy bedrooms. The apartment also has a kitchen, common room, and two bathrooms.  These accommodations are located at Boston University, 10 Buick Street, Boston, MA.  Reservations must be made by June 29th and can be done through EventBrite in the ticket section. 

If you prefer to stay off-campus, there are several hotels in the area where you can book your stay.  Please visit the CITL event website for more suggestions and special rates:  http://www.bu.edu/cgs/citl/DickensSymposium.
