Editor’s Note: Volume 11

Volume 11 of JPRS is an issue to remember. Every section of the journal ended up full-to-bursting, and thanks to the hard work of scholars, peer reviewers, copyeditors, guest-editors, and our masthead staff—hats off to Sarah Ficke, our Web Editor, for what must have felt like endless rounds of manuscript processing!—we are able to offer you all of the following:

This capacious volume will serve, I hope, not only as a sign of the vitality and range of popular romance studies as a field, but also as a foundation for—or a provocation to—future work, and I hope to hear its echoes in the talks to be presented at the ninth international conference on popular romance studies, “Romance Revitalized,” which will be held at the University of Birmingham (UK) from June 28-30, 2023.

As always, if you are interested in reviewing for JPRS or in suggesting a book for review, please contact us at We look forward to hearing from you!
