An introduction to Dickens Journals Online by actor Simon Callow.
We are very excited to announce a new one-year MA by Research in Dickens Studies that will be taught by the University of Buckingham (home of The Drood Inquiry and Dickens Journals Online ) and in partnership with the Charles Dickens Museum in London. The course will commence in October of this year, based at our new London premises at 51 Gower Street, Bloomsbury, and will allow access to the Museum's unique archive collections as well as the expertise of the Buckingham English Department and numerous guest seminar speakers from the Dickens community worldwide. Under close guidance, successful applicants will write a substantial research-based thesis based on a topic of their choosing, under the broad umbrella of 'Dickens Studies'. More details are available here.
DJO will have been out and about for four full years, come the end of this month. Time to take stock of what, if any, impact it's had. If you've used the site for research purposes, or in your teaching, or in some way that's been Good or Useful (however you define that!), then please complete this super-simple 4-question survey:--
