This article surveys Dickens scholarship published during 2019. The first major section addresses books, edited collections, and special issues devoted entirely to sustained, focused study of Dickens. Subsequent sections describe chapters, articles, and emerging or expanding online resources, arranged into these topical clusters: biographical and reference works and source studies; material and commodity culture, including studies of the body, economics, and textual production; narrative form, system, and genre; visual culture, including studies of illustration, adaptation, and performance; equity and social justice, including considerations of gender, race, the law, policing, prisons, and animal studies; religion, spirituality, and psychology; intermediality, including translation studies and matters of cultural and artistic exchange; and retrospectives that consider Dickens’s continued significance.
