Nagle Update

Chris Nagle recently attended the joint meeting of the American Society for Eighteenth Century Studies and the Eighteenth Century Ireland Society in Richmond, VA, and presided over a roundtable—“The Polyamorous 18th Century”—with his co-organizer, Courtney Wennerstrom of Indiana University. In addition to organizing and co-chairing the panel, Chris presented a brief talk, “Why Polyamorousness Now?” and met with his two new ASECS Graduate Student Caucus mentees. Chris and Prof. Wennerstrom are in discussion with presses about a collection of essays that will draw in part from this session and papers from a previous conference. (Let CN know if you’re doing any work that might fit!)

Additionally, Chris has been commissioned to do a 5,000-word essay on the poetry of Letitia Elizabeth Landon for the forthcoming Blackwell Encyclopedia of Romanticism (eds. Frederick Burwick, Diane Hoeveler, and Nancy Moore Goslee), and a review of Richard Sha’s Perverse Romanticism for Nineteenth Century Literature. He also has been asked to serve as a reader for the Journal for Eighteenth-Century Studies and as a consulting editor for The Explicator.
