plebeian public sphere that emerged alongside and in response to the
development of middle-class identity. The seminar welcomes submissions that

For ASECS in Portland, I'm running a roundtable, described below.
I'd like to make it both as interdisciplinary as possible and as
practical as possible: anyone who's had to use ingenuity to track
down sources and is willing to share tips is welcome. I'll be
glad to hear also from librarians and archivists, as well as from
people who work on subjects other than English-language printed
books.

I am looking for scholars who would be interested in forming a 3-4-person
panel on storytelling conventions for the International Conference on
Narrative at Austin, May 1-4, 2008. The focus of this panel would be genre,
not just in the traditional sense of form (poetry, drama, and prose, or
tragedy, comedy, and melodrama), but also more broadly construed in terms
of media conventions (Hollywood films, graphic novels, and oral
testimonies). How do these traditional and contemporary storytelling
practices shape (positively or negatively) the story, the storyteller and
the audience? How have various authors or media sought to influence
(successfully and unsuccessfully) the audience’s response to particular
