III. PUBLICATIONS AND SCHOLARSHIP
Book Authored
Seducing the Eighteenth-Century French Reader: Writing and Reading as Dangerous Practices. Ashgate Press (2008). 166 pages, with bibliography.

This work offers an interdisciplinary analysis of the overarching discourse in eighteenth-century France that coded the novel, and solitary reading in general, as seductive—and therefore dangerous—practices. Through this analysis, I examine what it meant to write “under the sign of seduction” in eighteenth-century France. Through a series of readings of works by Rousseau, Sade, Bastide, d’Argens, and one anonymous libertine author, I look at the ways in which these authors affirm, rather than deny their society’s anxieties about reading and writing, while also analyzing the ways in which they seem to argue that pleasure can only exist in relationship to the text—an affirmation that raises questions not only about eighteenth-century eroticism, but also about the reading subject’s relationship to the body.
