Start Time: 11:00 AM
End Time: 12:00 PM
 Both Charles Dickens and Walt Disney were acutely aware of their audience, shaping popular and conventional stories into something new. Dr. Fleming will highlight some of the ways Dickens incorporated his predecessors (with a particular focus on children's tales) before turning to Disney's adaptations of Victorian-era writers like Dickens, a practice the Walt Disney Company continued after his death and, with Frozen, still continues. #dickens
