Strange Sensations: Reading Bodily Experience in the Nineteenth Century: NeMLA 2017

This panel seeks papers that explore the representation and function of sensory experience in the nineteenth century, with an emphasis on strange, unstable or unreliable sensory episodes and their larger literary and cultural significance. Rather than subordinating body to mind, how do nineteenth-century texts reveal an emergent cultural interest in the material body and its physiological particularities? We are especially interested in papers that investigate the role of sensory representations across disciplines and explore bodily matters at the intersection of nineteenth-century literature, science, philosophy or visual art.

During the turn of the 20th century, in 1910, a mass destruction of stray dogs took place in Istanbul. Tens of thousands of dogs were put on boats and left on the uninhabited island of Sivriada, one of the Princes Islands on the Marmara Sea. The dogs have died slow and painful deaths; they starved so much so that they started eating each other and their cries were audible from the shores of Istanbul. Fast-forward 100 years, in October of 2013, locals of the Northern part of Istanbul were shocked to find wild hogs swimming in the Bosphorus. Not only were they unaware that these hogs existed, they also could not understand why they would swim in choppy streams of the Bosphorus.

In the United States, an unprecedented presidential election season is drawing to a close. For good or for ill, it has seen the arrival or return of beliefs which the neoliberal consensus had long ago dismissed as irrelevant: ideologies ranging from a vibrant socialism on the left to a frightening chauvinism on the right, and with an anti-corporate populism seemingly everywhere. To take stock of the rise of these “political heresies,” the editors of exCommunicated are looking for articles and essays that deal with the relationship of the political to the heretical, whether in the context of the current U.S. election or more broadly.
