In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

  • Announcing Special Issues

The editors of Dickens Quarterly, in consultation with members of the Editorial Board, are pleased to issue a call for contributions to a series of special issues of the journal. Three topics have been designated, each with a particular focus broad enough to offer opportunities for engagement from a variety of literary and non-literary perspectives.

Dickens and Wills

Wills in the novels, literally and metaphorically: their role as a narrative device, their importance and symbolic function; Dickens's personal and professional exposure to and knowledge of wills as a formal declaration of an intention to dispose of property; his arrangements for the distribution of his estate; the sociological and cultural implications of will-making during the nineteenth century and the treatment of the subject in his journalism.

Engaging Dickens

New ways to engage Dickens by making use of technological innovation: the digitalization of texts, digital humanities and Dickens; reviews of the best online websites; new opportunities presented by Dickens Journals Online and the consequences of this valuable facility; engaging with Dickens in different pedagogical contexts – in the classroom, in public spaces such as exhibitions, museums and festivals.

Obscure or Under-read Dickens

Neglected novels and other works, including Dickens's short fiction and miscellaneous pieces, under-scrutinized areas of his journalism, his non-fictional historical, theatrical and poetical writing. [End Page 172]
