Synopsis

From today's perspective, Charles Dickens seems to continue a British tradition in which dynamism and movement are central. This serves as a starting point for a bicentenary conference held by the English Department of Leipzig University in October 2012. The contributions united in this volume cover the three categories of geography, adaptation and reception of Dickens' works. Whether in a physical, imaginary or virtual sense, notions of space, time and change are fundamental to all of these fields. They inform both Dickens' narrative and his biography, in which acts of movement, exchange and transformation are perpetually performed. Articles discuss Dickens' travels in London and abroad, but also Chesterton's Dickens or his reception in Australia and New Zealand.
