Klekar & Nagle speak at ASECS Conference
Chris Nagle and Cynthia Klekar both participated in the most recent conference meeting of the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies, held this year on San Antonio’s famed Riverwalk. Chris co-presented a paper on “Female Polyamory and the Masquerade” with a colleague from Indiana University (Courtney Wennerstrom) as part of a panel devoted to eighteenth-century women’s “social networks.” Cynthia spoke on a roundtable entitled “Hard Times: Women Scholars and the Dynamics of Economic Recession,” a special session organized by the ASECS Women’s Caucus. Both of them especially enjoyed the trip to Texas -- one, because it provided a kind of homecoming, the other, simply because the food is so magnificent.
