world is the focus of this year's Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholar

the Problem of Aesthetic Value" at 3:30 p.m. Friday, March 4, in the

Language Association of American for her essay "The Carnivalization of
18th-Century English Narrative." In 1995 her book "The Female Thermometer"was
a runner-up for the PEN/Spielvogel-Diamonstein Award for the Art of the
Essay. She was elected to the PEN American Center in 2009.
has received fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, National
Endowment for the Humanities, Pew Foundation, William Andrews Clark
