Along with Mark Twain, few Victorian Era literary figures are as well-remembered or beloved as Charles Dickens. IES Abroad London faculty member Lucinda Hawksley, who co-teaches AH/FA 390 Western Art and the Convergence of Technique and Philosophy, recently penned a feature for the BBC Culture web page, discussing the enduring relevance of Charles Dickens, and the many festivals and celebrations that take place around the world (from Galveston, Texas, to Deventer, Holland) in his name. Befitting of a Dickens descendant (she's his great, great, great granddaughter), Hawksley is an expert on all things Dickensian.

Outside of teaching at the IES Abroad London Center, Hawksley has written or co-authored more than 20 books, including two critically acclaimed biographies: Lizzie Siddal: The Tragedy of a Pre-Raphaelite Supermodel and Katey: the Life and Loves of Dickens’s Artist Daughter. She lectures at the National Portrait Gallery in London and is a patron of the Charles Dickens Museum.
