Charles Dickens's Great Expectations: a publishing and reception history 1860-2012

In 2012 SCNR member Dr Mary Hammond was awarded a 9-month AHRC Fellowship to write a book on the publishing and reception history of Charles Dickens's Great Expectations 1860-2012. To be published by Ashgate in 2014, the book draws on archive material from several countries and aims to provide the fullest history to date of the reach and significance of this popular novel in a range of different media from theatre to the graphic novel. The project also funds a one-day Dickens training workshop for Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 teachers from the Hampshire region.  The workshop, organised in collaboration with University of Southampton's School of Education, is scheduled for 23 March 2013. For further information please contact Mary Hammond.
