S2 E4: Popular Writing: An Introduction

On this episode, Alex introduces our new Dialogues theme, “Pop”—that is, popular literary and para-literary writing—c. 1850–1950. He discusses the main issues and questions we’ll consider; the logic of our approach; our genre selection; the social, economic, and political contexts standing behind popular writing in the period; and some of our tentative theses.
