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?

Submissions are invited for a session on Censorship and Academic Freedom
at the 2006 NEMLA conference in Philadelphia, PA., March 02 - March 05,
2006.

>From the Ward Churchill controversy to the Patriot Act and the Academic
Bill of Rights, college campuses and classrooms have increasingly become
the focus of the censorship debate. This panel will examine the various
ways in which that debate is being played out and explore faculty
responses to the issues, both within and beyond their classes. Are
there certain subjects that should be avoided or ignored or should
colleges entertain even the most offensive possibilities in the name of
free speech?
