“Heteronormativity in Eighteenth-Century Studies” (ASECS Women's Caucus)

The eighteenth century, as we have often been told, witnesses the birth of sexuality and the birth
of the public sphere at once. What we have less often been told are the ways in which these two
seemingly asymmetrical developments intersect, whether during the period or within the critical
discourses and scholarly practices that have since accumulated around it.

important cultural ideals/values/concerns/debates which traditionally inform the descriptions of
landscapes in literary works.
