Michael Martin, University of Charleston

For the 2013 Interdisciplinary Studies in the 19th-Century Conference and its stated theme of "Leisure! Fun! Enjoyment!," I am proposing a Hawthorne panel that explores the way that pleasure, enjoyment, entertainment and leisure function in his works. The conference seeks original scholarship that considers "how enjoyment is experienced, what function it serves, how it can be legislated or monitored, if it can be exhausted, repeated, repelled, and whether individual enjoyment differs from enjoyment shared." Art objects, masques, and public performances all arouse pleasure in Hawthorne's audiences in his writings.

Diasporas can be seen in contrast to "home" nations, but diasporas can also function as homes themselves for those who immigrate in that diasporic subjects may become at home with, and in, communities of movement and relocation, and define their identities by their shifting subject positions.

Which like a fountain with a hundred spouts
did run pure blood: and many lusty Romans
Came smiling and did bathe their hands in it." (2.2.76-79)
