Putting the Romance Novel Under The Spotlight


Sarah S. G. Frantz puts the popular romance novel under the spotlight in her blog posts on the just ended Annual Conference for the Popular Culture Association and the American Culture Association in Boston, MA.

Frantz reports that the conference had five panels which discussed, among other things, the following aspects of romance and romance novels: regional and global perspectives; genres & forms; new approaches and enduring debates; romance and its neighbours.

There was also a Romance Authors Special Session which was made up of four award-winning and best-selling romance authors and included presentations and round table discussions.

In her posts, Frantz summarises the panels, papers and the Q&A sessions that took place.
