When the novel was first developing in eighteenth-century England, it was a lie. At least, that’s what many of its critics claimed. This session seeks to explore the kinds of deceptions that the early novel perpetuates. Both the form and content of the novel are welcome subjects of paper proposals, and topics could include (though are not limited to) authors’ truth-claims, objections to novels’ deceptiveness, or the impact of disguises or secrets on particular narratives.

Submit an abstract of 250 words for a 15- to 20-minute presentation to kathryn.hansen@citadel.edu by October 15, 2012. Please also indicate all audio-visual needs, if any.

The Southeastern American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies conference will take place in Charleston, South Carolina from February 28 to March 2, 2013. For more information, see the SEASECS 2012 website: http://www.seasecs.net/meeting_2013.html
