Janice Radway is kind of my hero. Her book Reading the Romance was one of my very first readings in my Ph.D. program, and I keep coming back to it in my research (along with A Feeling for Books). Before that, I'd never considered that reader reception could be a topic of research. I'm especially interested in how Radway's research holds up in a digital era. I haven't come to any conclusions yet. This is just one of the questions that's been in the back of my mind as I write the first chapter of my dissertation. What do you think of Radway? Has she shaped your research at all? If so, how?
