Charles Dickens was the ultimate interdisciplinary thinker. The encyclopedic quality of his writing, his incorporation of characters from all classes and walks of life, his genius at being “a special correspondent for posterity,” and his interest in reforms in prisons, the treatment of the insane and urban design all result in works that reflect on a wide range of disciplines and that can be effectively illuminated by interdisciplinary approaches. Yet these approaches are complicated by the fact that Dickens’s career coincided with the emergence of modern disciplines of knowledge, and the nature and definitions of these disciplines has shifted.
