Orlandians in the World: New and Forthcoming Publications

We’re taking a moment to round up and celebrate our team’s publications informed by and about Orlando:

Susan Brown’s article on the challenges of classifying gender in digital scholarship, “Categorically Provisional,” in the January 2020 PMLA special issue on “Varieties of Digital Humanities”;

the December 2019 article by Corrinne Harol and her co-authors Brynn Lewis and Subhash Lele, “Who Wrote It? The Woman of Colour and Adventures in Stylometry” in Eighteenth-Century Fiction, taking the 1808 novel and Orlando data as a case study linked to larger issues of anonymous authorship in eighteenth-century literature;

and Isobel Grundy’s entry on “Johnson and Women” in the forthcoming Oxford Handbook of Samuel Johnson (OUP), which draws on Orlando material to tell the story of his unusually collegiate relationships with his female peers.

Finally, we raise a virtual glass to Katherine Binhammer, whose newest monograph, Downwardly Mobile: The Form of Capital and the Sentimental Novel, is published next month by Johns Hopkins University Press.
