To commemorate Charles Dickens's historic trip to Lowell in 1842, UMass Lowell and its partners developed the Dickens in Lowell Project.
Building on the success of our 2012 bicentenary community events and award-winning public exhibition, we continue to explore Dickens’s life, work, and travels in America and connection to our city through digital projects, continued programming, and new research.
