I’m happy to report that we’ve confirmed Michael McKeon’s participation in our first Collective Reading, for October 3-5. Carrie and I will prepare responses to post on the first and second days of discussion, and I’m hoping to get at least one or two more guest respondents for the event. Michael has graciously agreed to respond to our discussion, and is looking forward to this opportunity to discuss his new book, The Secret History of Domesticity (Johns Hopkins, 2006). Thanks once again to Kathy Alexander at JHUP for helping us set this up.
We are planning to make this a regular feature on this blog, so that we can spotlight important new books in eighteenth-century studies.
Since we still have slots available, if you’d like to be one of our guest respondents, please contact me offlist at firstname.lastname@example.org. And please continue to write in with suggestions for other books to read this year.
Please feel free to cross-post this announcement to any other listservs or forums that you think would be interested.
