Publication in Literature Compass

Lit Compass ArticleAlthough it is behind a paywall, my article in Literature Compass came out on September 3. Here is a link to its abstract. It’s called “19th-century Travel and the 21st-century Scholar.” It’s a survey of books published in the last ten years or so that describe nineteenth-century British tourism and its relationship to literature. I argue that given the development of the field over the past generation of scholars, they¬†“need no longer apologize for interdisciplinarity nor for discarding the observance of strict boundaries between literary and non-literary genres.”

One thought on “Publication in Literature Compass”

  1. Hi! I like your website! I wonder if you could put more on it regarding your comment about ?Scholars no longer needing to apologize for the discarding of observance of strict boundaries etc. for us non-literary types who may visit your website from time to time. What are these boundaries in more detail? Is a non-literary genre like a tourism pamphlet or advertisement from that time period?
    Thanks, Dad
