Digital Dickens: A Dickens Day Workshop

Free workshop on Monday 7th July 2014 at Senate House, London.

This free, one-day workshop will provide an opportunity to reflect upon and develop a number of digital Dickens projects, including a sequence of online serial reading projects and Dickens Journals Online (DJO). We intend for the event to enrich the development of digital Dickens projects by increasing participation and building confidence and competence in engaging in online communities and using social media. The workshop will also offer an opportunity to think about recent research in this area, and encourage participants to make connections between their forms of scholarship in different media.
