Romancing the Discourse

A monthly online romance lecture and Q&A series for the romance reader, writer and academic, and the perfect entry point in the genre for the romance-curious.

Discover how food can play an integral part in a contemporary romance; how erotic romances use kink as liberation; and how paranormal romance can degender agency.

In thirteen sessions that cover everything from dystopian and science fiction romance to old school romance, learn more about the subtleties of the genre, and how the promise of a Happy Ever After allows writers to take risks.

Each session costs £5 and attendees can select which sessions they would like to attend.

Sessions will run as a live 40 minute lecture followed by a 20 minute Q&A session, on a Saturday at 9pm GMT (Saturday afternoon for US attendees and Sunday morning for Australian). All sessions will be available to stream for a limited time, and people will be able to submit questions in advance.
