Boarding Out: Professor David Faflik discusses his new book

As a part of the 2013-2014 English Department Faculty Speaker Series, Professor David Faflik will discuss his recent book, Boarding Out: Inhabiting the American Urban Literary Imagination, 1840-1860 (Northwestern University Press, 2012) at a talk on Wednesday, April 23 at 5:00pm in Swan 154, the Hoffmann Room.

Boarding Out: Inhabiting the American Urban Literary Imagination, 1840-1860 identifies the antebellum boardinghouse as the signature city shelter around which these modern preoccupations occurred. The communal urban domestic arrangement of boarding not only shaped the subject matter of contemporary writing; it impacted the very forms and functions of literary production in the period.
