Transatlantic Fiction, Transatlantic Readers:
The Audience for the Novel in the US and Britain 1750-1860

Panel proposal for Reception Study Society Conference, Kansas City, MO, 9/27
- 9/29/2007

        The audience for the novel in English in the period 1750-1860 was
global, a result of the Anglophonic diaspora around the Atlantic basin. Yet
it remains to be demonstrated whether and how this fact influenced
individual writers or how best to understand the ways geography, nation,
gender, race, and class produced specific communities of readers-and to what
extent such communities for Anglophonic novels could be considered
transnational.
