McDaniel Conference Linkage

I wasn’t able to attend the McDaniel Conference on Popular Romance, but here are some reports on the proceedings.

Amy Burge reports on Reflections on (Re)Reading Romance: A ‘Hands-On’ Harlequin Workshop at the recent conference held at McDaniel College. Not only does the workshop sound fascinating and illuminating, the blog post about it is, too. Here’s a bit more about the workshop and conference.

The excellent blog Read, React, Review has three posts on the McDaniel Conference:
Reflections on the McDaniel Popular Romance Conference, Part 1.
Reflections on the McDaniel Popular Romance Conference: My Paper (part 2).
Eloisa James’ Keynote for the McDaniel Popular Romance Conference.

The Liturgy of Cliche by Angela Toscano, one of the papers presented at the conference.

And another: Romance, Readers, Affect by Jonathan A. Allan.

I can’t wait until more of the papers are published, and I can read them!
