At a Glance

It’s Christmas in June! As a virtual extension of the annual Dickens Universe held each summer on the campus of the University of California Santa Cruz, this lecture focuses on the origins and early theatrical adaptations and appropriations of "A Christmas Carol," with a special focus on the story’s genesis in "The Pickwick Papers" and its rather surprising reappearance in the guise of a turn-of-the-century sci-fi drama.
