The Burney Society will be holding its annual meeting in Tucson, AZ on

University of Notre Dame. Professor Doody is the author of Frances
Burney: The Life in the Works and The True Story of the Novel, the
editor
of Burney's Evelina, and the co-editor of Burney's Cecilia and The
Wanderer.

This year's conference theme is "1814" -- a year that saw the exile of
Napoleon to Elba, the burning of the White House, and the end of the War

of1812, along with the premiere of Beethoven's 8th Symphony, the
introduction of the steam press at The London Times, and the composition

of "The Star Spangled Banner". The literary world saw the publication
of
Frances Burney's The Wanderer, along with Jane Austen's Mansfield Park,
Maria Edgeworth's Patronage, Lord Byron's "Corsair," William
Wordsworth's
"Excursion," and Walter Scott's Waverley. The Burney Society invites
submissions on any aspect of Frances Burney's life or work during that
year, including papers that focus on Burney in conjunction with
contemporary authors, or situate Burney in the cultural moment of 1814.
