CFP for ASECS panel:
â€œPopular fiction after Richardsonâ€
DEADLINE: September 15th 2007
This panel scrutinizes the idea of eighteenth-century â€œpopular fiction,â€
particularly in the wake of Samuel Richardson's groundbreaking novels. It
asks how this discursive marketplace registered the â€œliteraryâ€ and helped
to determine what we now regard as canonical.
