This is a call for proposals for a seminar on "Constructing Deviant
Identities in Eighteenth-Century Media" at next year's ASECS at
Montreal.
In the seminar, we shall discuss how subjects who deviated from what
was considered the 'legitimate' norm (e.g. criminals, whores,
homosexuals, lunatics) were represented in different
eighteenth-century media contexts, such as pamphlets, caricatures,
prints, novels, or painting.
Papers should address how these representations worked rather than who or w=
hat
was represented. I.e., in how far are exclusive social practices
realized and reflected in forms of representation that were typical of part=
icular media?
