My research explores how the novel developed in and contributed to Britain’s reading public in the long eighteenth century. I examine the complex ways eighteenth-century writers defined authorship in relation to various actors in the scribal and print culture. My research on authorship in the reading public informs my pedagogical enthusiasm for collaboration, diversity, and inclusivity. Using digital pedagogy to create an ecosystem of writing, I provide scaffolding to amplify student voice and to teach them to make arguments about literature.
