Medicine and Modernity in the Long Nineteenth Century
St Anne’s College, Oxford
10th – 11th September 2016

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS: CHRISTOPHER HAMLIN AND LAURA OTIS

In our current ‘Information Age’ we suffer as never before, it is claimed, from the stresses of an overload of information, and the speed of global networks. The Victorians diagnosed similar problems in the nineteenth century. The medic James Crichton Browne spoke in 1860 of the ‘velocity of thought and action’ now required, and of the stresses imposed on the brain forced to process in a month more information ‘than was required of our grandfathers in the course of a lifetime’. Through this two day interdisciplinary conference, hosted by the ERC funded Diseases of Modern Life project based at Oxford, we will explore the phenomena of stress and overload, and other disorders associated with the problems of modernity in the long nineteenth century, as expressed in the literature, science, and medicine of the period. We seek to return to the holistic, integrative vision of the Victorians as it was expressed in the science and literature of the period, exploring the connections drawn between physiological, psychological and social health, or disease, and offering new ways of contextualising the problems of modernity facing us in the twenty-first century. We are particularly interested in comparative perspectives on these issues from international viewpoints.

Making Contact: Artistic and Linguistic Representations of Conflict and Commonality

Call for Papers:
The idea of making contact, a phenomenon that can be accidental or deliberate, elicits a range of interpretations, from the gentle brush of a hand to the most violent of collisions. In these terms, contact evokes that which connects and divides, simultaneously establishing relations on new terms while also producing fierce conflict. Borders are both meeting places and points of impact, where cultures, languages, and even versions of the human are negotiated. Contact may occur in one explosive moment as an immediate reaction to our circumstances, or it can reach across space and time, its implications emerging in a distant location for a different generation. It also extends beyond questions of hybridity, cultural clashes, and the (trans)national, and encompasses the boundary between the human and the animal, humanity and materiality, and the real and the imaginary. In this way, contact is made not only across geographical borders, but also across culturally constructed divisions between genders, genres, or between the normal and abnormal. With these connotations of “making contact” in mind, we ponder the artistic and linguistic consequences of these possible forms of encounters.
