Recent Dickens Studies: 2008
Abstract:Scholarship in Dickens continued to flourish in 2008. This essay examines articles, book chapters, and books; the bibliography that follows the essay demonstrates the vitality and breadth ofDickens studies. After considering two essay collections, I organize the review into nine distinct but related areas offocus: (1) biography; (2) home; (3) elsewhere; (4) children; (5) women; (6) commodity culture; (7) reading; (8) modes ofrepresentation; and (9) echoes. The essay highlights work I found particularly compelling, and it poses questions that scholarship might pursue in the future.

- Founded in 1970, the centennial anniversary of Dickens's death, DSA has been published since 1980 by AMS Press in cooperation with the Ph.D. program in English of the City University of New York and in association with the Graduate Center, CUNY and Queens College, CUNY. Besides presenting articles exploring the wide range of Dickens''s interests and talents, DSA also includes essays on other mid- and late- nineteenth-century authors and on the history and aesthetics of the period's fiction. In addition, each volume contains a substantial review article examining a prior year's scholarship on Dickens, and DSA occasionally publishes surveys of work on other Victorian writers, as well as review essays considering specialized studies of subjects in Victorian fiction. The editors seek to offer essays of "the most diverse kinds," those employing innovative as well as traditional approaches.
