Work in Progress

  • Negotiating Print and Manuscript in the Eighteenth-Century Novel
    Book manuscript studying eighteenth-century novels’ representations of manuscripts and of print in the context of the period’s burgeoning print culture. Argues that eighteenth-century novels had to negotiate among the different kinds of authority attributed to manuscripts and to print in order to construct a new kind of authority for themselves; shows that the way these negotiations changed over the century forms an important part of the history of the novel and of print culture.  In progress.
