Non-guaranteed session for ASA (American Studies Association) 2017. From the hermit’s tales of the eighteenth century through the writings of transcendentalists in the nineteenth and expatriates in the twentieth (to name only a few), American writers and cultural producers have long represented separation from society as a form of political, social, and/or cultural dissent. This panel seeks to examine such representations with an eye toward their inherent ambiguities. To what degree and under what conditions can dissent, a form of oppositional political engagement, stem from what is ostensibly a strategy of disengagement—i.e., separation and withdrawal?

A panel at the Tenth Celtic Conference in Classics
19-22 July, 2017 in Montreal, Canada
Co-Hosted by McGill University and Université de Montréal

In her 2014 A Cultural History of the Irish Novel, 1790-1829, Claire Connolly declares that a major aim is, and must be, ‘to restore seriousness and nuance to our understanding of the Irish fiction of the romantic period’, which her criticism seeks to achieve by ‘refus[ing] or at least redirect[ing] readings that treat the novels as so many failed efforts to contain the hectic world of early nineteenth-century Ireland’ (Connolly 1).
