Princeton Symposium on "Authorship in the Popular Romance Genre" is being held on October 24th and 25th.
On Thursday 24th October from 5-7.30pm there will be keynote speeches from Jennifer Crusie and Kay Mussell and a roundtable discussion involving the two speakers plus Eloisa James/Mary Bly, An Goris, April Alliston and Pamela Regis. Registration starts at 4.30.
The Thursday keynotes and roundtable are free and open to the public. You can register here. This is a rare opportunity to hear Jenny Crusie because, as she says, "Travel is now dicey for me."
On Friday 25th October scholarly panels are scheduled from 9.30am-5.30pm. A fee will be charged for these panels but that also covers the cost of lunch:
• Early bird registration for the Friday panels = $20 (deadline October 1, 2013)
• After October 1, the registration fee for the Friday panels is $30
Register here. More details about the academic panels should be available in late September on the symposium website.
