Dickens and Victorian Culture

This programme studies the author in a place that perhaps offers more Dickensian associations than anywhere else in the world. It combines a focus on both the local and the global author through compulsory modules contextualising the variety of ways in which Dickens engaged with the social, cultural and political issues of his age. Interdisciplinary approaches are employed, using Dickens as a focus, to consider the relationships between19th-century fiction and journalism, the Victorians� engagement with material culture, and their fascination with the body and its metaphors.
