    Dickens After Dickens

    edited by Emily Bell

    G. K. Chesterton closes his 1906 study of Charles Dickens with ‘A Note on the Future of Dickens’, ending with the enigmatic promise of meeting Dickens and his characters in ‘the tavern at the end of the world’. At a threshold moment for Dickens studies, Chesterton is not only looking back to find Dickens, he is also looking forward.

    The twentieth and twenty-first centuries have continued the quest to ‘find’ Dickens and recapture the characteristically Dickensian. From research into his lasting influence and popularity to a century of film adaptations, Dickens’ legacy has come to encompass an array of conventional and innovative forms.

    Dickens After Dickens – the forthcoming volume to be published by White Rose University Press – will focus on his diverse influence beyond the realm of film adaptation. It will trace Dickensian resonances across the nineteenth, twentieth and twenty-first centuries, in areas ranging from architecture and Norwegian literature to video games and neo-Victorian fiction. Edited by Dr Emily Bell (University of York), with chapters contributed by rising and leading scholars in the field, this collection will discuss the continued and evolving influence of Charles Dickens and the nature of his legacy. 

       

    Hidden Depths: the Palaeolithic origins of our most human emotions

    by Penny Spikins

    Hidden Depths argues that changes in emotional motivations were far more significant in key transformations in human evolution than has previously been appreciated.

    The book contends that the origins of our modern emotional minds, including concerns with reputation and emotional sensitivity, lie in transformations taking place thousands and even millions of years ago. Drawing on ecological and evolutionary processes, as well as a detailed consideration of the archaeological record, it considers how two key emotional transitions - an early transition to human compassion and a later transition to human tolerance - laid the basis for our modern social and emotional cognition.

    This monograph will be of interest within Palaeolithic Archaeology, Evolutionary Anthropology, Palaeoanthropology and Psychology as well as having wider public appeal within the field of Human Origins.
