RomanceScholar -- A Listserv for Scholars and Teachers of Romance Fiction


About RomanceScholar
English (USA)

Welcome to the Romance Scholars listserv: an on-line forum for the academic study of popular romance novels and related works of literature, film, and popular culture.

On this listserv we can discuss the scholarship of others and our own ongoing work, share syllabi and ideas for our classes in popular romance, and discuss individual works of romance fiction. We can also use this forum to spread the word about calls for papers and other opportunities for romance scholarship, and to post and discuss articles about romance fiction from the popular press.

Please respect one another and the genre we study, and do not use this list for commercial purposes.

To see the collection of prior postings to the list, visit the RomanceScholar Archives. (The current archive is only available to the list members.)
