Welcome to Happy Hearts: Romancelandia! Each month, UW-Green Bay Associate Prof. Jessica Lyn Van Slooten (English, Writing and Applied Arts) shares reviews and recommendations of romance novels she loves. Her reviews will be informed by her passion for the genre, and her scholarly approach of feminist literary and cultural criticism. To learn more about Associate Prof. Van Slooten’s romance origin story and the reasons she thinks romance is an inherently feminist genre, check out her 2019 TEDx UWGB talk, Romance Novels are Feminist. She has published numerous articles on teaching and assessing gender studies courses, and popular romance fiction and film. She is currently drafting a romance novel set in a small midwestern town.
