Hot off the University of Pennsylvania presses! I had the pleasure of guest editing a special issue on "Jane Austen and Her Contemporaries" for the journal The Eighteenth Century: Theory and Interpretation (Vol. 56.2). These fabulous essays had their start in the NEH Austen Summer Seminar at the University of Missouri, a think-tank that continues to bear fruit. So excited to see this work in print, and so pleased to have the opportunity to continue to work with these brilliant scholars.
Does your campus have roller derby yet? I published a short blog post over on Derby Central, with an end-of-the-semester update about collegiate roller derby. Hey, derbyverse and smackademics, help us grow this sport on the collegiate level! (And if derby is on your campus already, do tell.)
