Eric G. Lorentzen, Professor of English, was one of six international Dickens scholars who took part in a timely roundtable presentation and discussion on Dickens and Contagion. The roundtable was part of a virtual global conference which took place on June 9, which was the 150th anniversary of the Victorian writer’s death. #Dickens150 featured Dickens scholars from 10 different countries, and linked many participants around the world through synchronous time zone presentations that stretched from the London morning until evening in America. The specific roundtable on Dickens and Contagion, along with a few other selected parts of the conference, was filmed live, and will be forthcoming for global viewing on the #Dickens150 YouTube channel soon.
