About C. Johnson

Claudia L. Johnson joined the faculty at Princeton in 1994 and now serves as Department Chair. She specializes in eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century literature, with a particular emphasis on the novel. Her books include Jane Austen: Women, Politics, and the Novel (Chicago, 1988), Equivocal Beings: Politics, Gender and Sentimentality in the 1790s (Chicago, 1995), and The Cambridge Companion to Mary Wollstonecraft (Cambridge, 2002), along with editions of Jane Austen's Mansfield Park (Norton, 1998), Sense and Sensibility (Norton, 2002), and Northanger Abbey (Oxford, 2003). Her research has been supported by major fellowships such as the NEH and the Guggenheim. She is now finishing a book about author-love called Jane Austen's Cults and Cultures, which traces permutations of "Jane mania" from 1817 to the present, and also working on another called Raising the Novel, which explores modern efforts to create a novelistic canon by elevating novels to keystones of high culture. Clara Tuite is Senior Lecturer in English, University of Melbourne. She is the author of Romantic Austen: Sexual Politics and the Literary Canon (Cambridge, 2002, 2008), as well as several essays on Austen, and the co-editor, with Gillian Russell, of Romantic Sociability: Social Networks and Literary Culture in Britain, 1770-1840 (Cambridge, 2002, 2006).
