    LLL Series: Early Industrial Manchester and Charles Dicken’s Hard Times: The Real and Imagined City

    Guest Speaker: Dr. Paul Fideler, Professor Emeritus of History and Humanities, Lesley University

    Dickens’s novel forces us to face the ongoing dilemmas of modernism: the collisions between technological advances, such as steam power, machinery, and factory labor, and the inequality of outcomes, resistance, competing thought systems and faiths, government intervention, and the search for ‘’community’’ and the essentials needed for human well-being.
