I need your help for my presentation, “History Ever After: Fabricated Historical Chronotopes in Romance Genre Fiction,” which I will deliver at the 7th Annual Conference of the International Association for the Study of Popular Romance. Whether you are a romance professional or a romance reader, please answer a short four-question survey designed just for you:
For authors, editors, agents, assistants, librarians, graphic designers, and other industry professionals who create historical romance (and read it):
For romance readers (including authors who do not write historical romance):
Note: While you are asked to sign into Google to ensure one survey per person, it will NOT collect your email address.
These are not the only way you can help. I am building a few lists of books outside the most popular chronotopes.
For books outside of 19th century England (Regency/Victorian), Scotland, and the American West, click here.
For books (in any historical time period) that include political, military, or socio-economic conflict or complexity, click here.
Thank you for all your help. I plan to summarize my results on this blog in the future, so please stay tuned. I hope to see as many of you as possible at the IASPR conference in Sydney. Thanks again!
