Doctor Love Panel

Historically, romance writers and academics have had something of a rocky relationship, and romance writers have viewed any academic attention with suspicion. However, the field of popular romance studies is vibrant and growing, with its own journal and an international conference, and, increasingly, researchers in this field have been drawn from the commercial romance industry itself. In this session, five panelists, each with a foot in both camps—academic and commercial— will bring you the latest insights, research and future directions in popular romance studies, and share a little about their own research.

The academic field of popular romance studies, which covers a wide range of research areas, is vibrant with a growing reach, and has both its own journal and an international conference. In this session six panellists, each with one foot in the scholarly world of popular romance studies and one foot in the world of publishing romance novels, will bring you the latest insights, research and future directions in the field, as well as answer your burning questions.
