Neo-Latin Scholarship on the Slavs

Almost all branches of modern science and scholarship, including humanities, can trace their existence back to at least early modern times when Latin was a common medium of European erudition. Yet, present-day researchers in individual disciplines are largely unaware of the existence of early modern Latin scholarship related to their respective fields of study.      

Subversive Homes: Domestic Spaces in English Women’s Writing 1640-1740 (NeMLA Pittsburgh, April 12-15, 2018)

Women have traditionally been associated with domestic spaces. This panel will examine the complexity of these places as a locus of intersection between various economic, religious, and social spaces. As Nicole Pohl points out in Women, Space and Utopia 1600-1800, “the house and home—seems in itself subdivided into areas that display social division or solidarity: ‘The household is a ‘sociogramm’ of a family but [also] of something much more.” This panel will investigate the “something much more” that is taking place in the domestic landscape of early modern women’s writing.

Visualizing Travel: Panel at ASECS (Orlando, FL; March 2018)

In recent decades, scholars have become increasingly interested in analyzing and recovering eighteenth-century travel writing, but the visual side of travel texts is often ignored. By the time the word “scrapbook” entered the English lexicon in the 1820s, personal, visual travel records had long existed and circulated in other forms, including the album, the illustrated journal, and the commonplace book. These forms typically contained less of a chronological narrative than written travelogues, but they presented a highly curated, interactive, and, in some cases, tactile experience for their viewers.
