An Academic Look at Romance

Last week, there was a conference held at Princeton University which centered around romance novels. It featured a number of academics and romance novelists (fyi...many romance novelists happen to be academics. I think the average person on the street would be blown away by the number of genre writers who hold Ph.D.'s).

How I wish I could have been there for what I'm sure was an intelligent, insightful look at the genre. Thankfully, a blogger from the The Huffington Post wrote a great article about the event. It's great to see the romance genre taken seriously.
