Kris Siefken, PhD student in the School of English, has been awarded the Partlow Prize by the Dickens Society for his paper entitled '"Character made plastic by the discipline": How solitary confinement presents psychologically construct(ive) possibilities in Oliver Twist and A Tale of Two Cities'.


Named after Robert Partlow, the original Secretary-Treasurer of The Dickens Society, the Partlow Prize includes a monetary award, a waiver of the symposium registration fee, and the cost of the Dickens dinner. Dickens Quarterly has also asked for first refusal of Kris's paper.
