SCHELLENBERG, Betty A.




Author Tags: Literary Criticism, Women

SFU-based author Schellenberg examined why more than 80% of English female authors until 1780 tended to publish anonymously, or using a male pseudonym, in The Professionalization of Women Writers in Eighteenth-Century Britain (New York: Cambridge University Press, 2005). Exceptions included Sarah Fielding, sister of Henry Fielding, and Frances Brooke, whose husband was the chaplain to the British garrison in Quebec after the 1759 conquest. Schellenberg, BEd, BA (Winnipeg), MA, PhD (Ottawa), has also co-edited Reconsidering the Bluestockings (Huntington Library, 2003, with Nicole Pohl) and Part Two: Reflections on the Sequel (Toronto, 1998, with Paul Budra).
