I wanted to give advance notice of a new book which is due to be published next year: Kamblé, Jayashree
Creating Identity: The Popular Romance Heroine's Journey to Selfhood and Self-Presentation.
Indiana University Press. More details can be found here.
I came across a footnote which was somewhat intriguing from a romance scholarship perspective:
That's in Raß, M.N. (2022). "Crisis or Upheaval? Reflections on Brexit in Literature and Film: An Overview." Europe in Upheaval. Ed. M.N. Raß and K. Wolfinger. Palgrave Macmillan, Stuttgart. https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-476-05883-6_13
I wonder if anyone else has noticed an impact of Brexit in romances.
And some new publications:
