Stephanie Harper Recine / California State University, Northridge

Just past her 300th birthday, the popularity of Sarah Fielding is increasing; yet, her life and writing tend to be overshadowed by the critical reception of her brother, Henry. This panel seeks to advance the conversation surrounding Sarah Fielding, especially as it relates to new approaches on themes of gender, nature, and trauma in her work. Furthermore, papers which focus on teaching Fielding are encouraged.
