Reading the Romance
Would you like to take a course on the history of British romance fiction? Then come to Mainz this autumn!
In the next winter semester I will teach a course called "Reading the Romance," in which we will trace the development of British romance from Austen to Heyer to Bridget Jones, from the gothic novels of the eighteenth century to Jane Eyre to The Mistress of Mellyn. And, of course, we will also discuss Mills & Boon and their role in the evolution of romance in Britain.
Needless to say that I'm thrilled to pieces!
