Romance Heads to the Ivy League!

Ladies and Gentlemen, the website for the Princeton University conference "Love as the Practice of Freedom? Romance Fiction and American Culture" is now live!

Organized by Eric Selinger (DePaul University) and William Gleason (Princeton), the conference will be held on April 23-24, 2009, at Princeton's Betts Auditorium. Featured speakers include:
The conference is free and open to the public; please register in advance, as space is limited. For a small fee, conference-goers can enjoy lunch and dinner with participants; again, seating is limited.

Please spread the word, and feel free to link, post, or otherwise disseminate the information. (Carrier pigeon? Semaphore? Hedgehog with a talking box? You name it.)

I hope to see you there!


  1. That looks like it's going to be an absolutely fabulous conference. I'm really looking forward to reading all about it.

    Have you been in touch with Monica Jackson recently? Her website's been down for ages, and I tried contacting her but didn't get an answer.

  2. Thanks, Laura! Let me see what the graduate assistant has heard from MJ about travel arrangements, etc. That would be the most recent email.
