LIT292: Darwin and Dickens—Science and Literature in Victorian England


The remarkable impact of Victorian England on modern American culture is nowhere more striking than in the fields of science and literature—a phenomenon largely due to the groundbreaking enterprise of England’s most influential biologist, Charles Darwin, and most beloved novelist, Charles Dickens.  LIT292: Darwin and Dickens—Science and Literature in Victorian England will explore these intellectual giants and the world they inhabited.

We will reside in Bloomsbury—London’s “college town”—very near Darwin and Dickens’s homes and haunts.  Our multidisciplinary adventures will take us to the British Museum, Downe House, Dickens House, The British Museum of Natural History, the British Library, the Globe Theater, and, of course, a few of Darwin and Dickens’s favorite pubs.
