THE BURNEY SOCIETY OF NORTH AMERICA 2017 CONFERENCECALL FOR PAPERS "PLACING THE BURNEYS" NOVEMBER 2-3, 2017, PITTSBURGH, PA
The Burney family is strongly associated with various cities such as King's Lynn, London, Bath, Brighton, Paris. The family's many talents flourished in urban settings.
Geographical place mattered to the Burney family. But so did other placements: social, political, and class. Moreover, critical placement in Frances's time and in our own has been essential to crafting different versions of Burney.
Inspired by the Burney's ties to geography, the Burney Society of North America presents "Placing the Burneys."
