Guest post on JVC blog

My blog “‘Can you show me the places’? Dickens 2012 and literary tourism” has been published on The Journal of Victorian Culture’s Victorians Beyond the Academy” blog – if the title sounds familiar, it’s a re-write of a post I wrote here a while back, updated to include some further reflections after re-reading Nicola Watson’s The Literary Tourist and some more thoughts about the politics of national culture that emerge around the bicentenary celebrations… Do go and have a read!

And if you haven’t seen it already, take a look around Victorians Beyond the Academy- it’s a really interesting initiative by the journal to encourage Victorians to discuss “the presence and treatment of the Victorian in our contemporary world”.
