Stephanie Insley Hershinow is Assistant Professor in Baruch’s Department of English, and is currently completing a book called “Born Yesterday: Inexperience and the Early Novel.” Her work intervenes on reigning conceptions of the novel as premised on depth, development, and socialization. Portions of the project have appeared in Novel and Eighteenth-Century: Theory and Interpretation​. ​

The talk will appeal to anyone interested in the novel, adolescence, gender, quantitative approaches to literary theory, and/or eighteenth/nineteenth century literature.
