Panel Title: Children of the Enlightenment
Current theoretical debates about subjects and objects, bodies and minds, and genre and gender have explored in detail women’s status as objects and done much to theorize their efforts to become speaking subjects. But these discussions can be more transgressive in order to explore the ways in which Romantic writers in particular challenged the foundational ideas of materiality that they were given and on which we continue to rely when we read them in the twenty-first century. For the proposed collection, Material Transgressions: Romantic Bodies, Affects, Genders, we are soliciting essays that think outside of Romantic ideologies of gender that reiterate notions of sexed bodies, embodied subjectivity, or stable texts.
There is a subtle irony in the fact that Thomas Hoccleve, whose corpus of early fifteenth-century poems is saturated with the concepts of recovery and rehabilitation, has been at the center of a decades-long process of poetic and pedagogic rehabilitation in university English departments. No longer brushed aside as a mere epigone of Geoffrey Chaucer, the traditional nucleus of Medieval English literature syllabi, Hoccleve now claims a legitimate place in the late medieval canon. But what is that place exactly, as far as college classrooms go?
