In 2018, Laurence Sterne’s A Sentimental Journey through France and Italy, the author’s ‘work of redemption,’ will have been entertaining, touching and outraging readers for 250 years. To mark the sestercentennial anniversary of its publication and Laurence Sterne’s death, we are pleased to announce a forthcoming essay collection: ‘A Legacy to the World’: New Approaches to Laurence Sterne’s ‘A Sentimental Journey’ and other Works to be edited by W.B Gerard, Paul Goring, and M-C. Newbould. The editors seek to include new explorations of affect, culture, gender, class, religion and nation, and studies of connections between A Sentimental Journey and other works by Sterne and his contemporaries.
The collection’s anticipated publication is late 2018.
Further details will be posted on this page in due course.
