Reading Smell in Eighteenth-Century Fiction
Dr. Emily Friedman, Associate Professor, Department of English, Auburn University
Date and Time: Thursday, October 27 at 3 p.m.
Location: Ground Floor Auditorium, Ralph Brown Draughon Library
Reading Smell includes widescale research and focussed case studies of some of the most striking or prevalent uses of olfactory language in eighteenth-century British prose fiction. Reading Smell not only provides new insights into canonical works by authors like Swift, Smollett, Richardson, Burney, Austen, and Lewis but also sheds new light on the history of the British novel as a whole.
