The Fourth Annual International Conference on Popular Romance Studies
The Pleasures of Romance
York, United Kingdom
27-29 September, 2012
Deadline Extended to May 30, 2012. Travel funding available.
Pleasure is continually disappointed, reduced, deflated, in favor of strong, noble values: Truth, Death, Progress, Struggle, Joy, etc. Its victorious rival is Desire: we are always being told about Desire, never about Pleasure.
I adore simple pleasures. They are the last refuge of the complex.
