The Delusional Self or the Artful Self

Tuesday, September 6, 2016 - 1:52pm
ASECS 2017, March 30-April 2, Minneapolis
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 15, 2016

Whether as a self in motion, a delusional self, or a pensive self, the construction and representation of the “self” is central to the 18C.  The scrutiny of self-representation has been taken up through the lens of rhetoric, literary genres, gender, modernity, politics, and history, to name but a few scholarly undertakings. This panel seeks to explore  self-representation as spectacle, performance, testimonial, revelation, and/or deliverance, be they evident in the printed word or in the visual and fine arts. Contributions across disciplines and geographies examining representations of the self are welcome. The use of visual aids is encouraged.
