Encore: The Influence of Dickens on Serial Fiction

April 5 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Presenter: Anne Stoddard

Seminar: Dickens’ Our Mutual Friend

Serialized storytelling has never been more popular that it is today with the proliferation of mini-series available on multiple streaming platforms. Charles Dickens, who published all his novels in parts before releasing them in single volumes, has had a significant impact on the serial genre we know today. In this talk, I give a brief history of serial fiction and describe how Dickens’ themes and narrative strategies have become central to the serial form.
