Dickens at Leicester
The Victorian Studies Centre at the University of Leicester has a long tradition of Dickens scholarship, supported by rich archival holdings and a lively programme of academic and public events focused upon the author. We are especially active in this area in the run-up to the Bicentenary of Dickens’s birth, and the University is a partner in the Dickens 2012 project. Since 2006 the Victorian Studies Centre has co-organised the annual 'Dickens Day', in partnership with Birkbeck College, London, and the Dickens Fellowship.
