This proposed panel for the 2018 C19 conference seeks paper proposals on the topic of tourism in nineteenth-century American culture. The panel aims to explore the relationship between tourism and the American landscape. This might refer to tourism’s impact on the American landscape, or how tourists and touristic writers understood and depicted the environment. Papers might also consider how touristic writers grappled with the cultural or political “landscape” of the nineteenth century.

THEME: READING AND WRITING ACROSS THE
In the last five years or so, rhetoric and composition scholarship has offered work that brings digital media and bodies to the forefront to shape pedagogical praxis, illuminate cultural practices, and extend composition studies (into writing studies). Yet, much of this scholarship remains focused on the rhetorical construction of embodiment, as indicated by several recent journal special issues: Perspectives and Definitions of Digital Rhetoric (Enculturation 23 2016), Wearable Rhetorics: Bodies, Cities, Collectives (Rhetoric Society Quarterly 46.3 2016), Embodied and Affective Rhetorics (Present Tense 6.1 2016), Embodied Sound (Kairos 21.1 2016), and Sexing Colorlines: Black Sexualities, Popular Culture, and Cultural Production (Poroi 7.2 2011).
