"Held every year at the beginning of August on the beautiful UC Santa Cruz campus, the Dickens Universe brings together scholars, graduate students, high school teachers, and members of the general public for a week of study and Dickensian conviviality. The program includes formal lectures by internationally distinguished scholars, seminars, small discussion groups, films, performances, exhibits, and a variety of informal social activities. Regularly attended by more than 200 participants of different ages and backgrounds, the Universe provides a relaxed and supportive environment in which to pursue serious intellectual inquiry.

Each summer, the Universe program focuses on a different Dickens novel and on a related theme. Previous gatherings have featured such topics as "Dickens and America" (in conjunction with Martin Chuzzlewit), "Dickens and Women" (in conjunction with Dombey and Son), "Dickens and the Law" (in conjunction with Bleak House), and "Dickens and Victorian Publishing" (in conjunction with The Pickwick Papers). Papers presented at the Dickens Universe are published regularly in Dickens Studies Annual: Essays on Victorian Fiction.

Dates for the 2012 Dickens Universe, featuring Bleak House are Sunday July 29 to Saturday August 4."
