The Medieval “Freak Show”: Putting the Monstrous on Display in the Middle Ages

 

People and creatures perceived as monstrous or wondrous are often put on display for profit or exploitation. At times, this exhibitionism presents itself as “education.” What has popularly been called the “freak show” achieved its height via the emergence of working class entertainments that transformed visual cultures in the nineteenth century, as exemplified in P.T. Barnum’s circus and its sideshows, but also including innovations such as the stereoscope and the panorama, which prepared the rise of cinema and, later, television.

SLSA 2016 – Creating Accounts of Creative Bodies: the Narrative Work of Fertility

updated: 
Sunday, May 1, 2016 - 9:57pm
Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts (SLSA)

Babies perform a lot of narrative work. George Eliot's Middlemarch narrator playfully quips that "where there was a baby, things were right enough," and that "error, in general, was a mere lack of that central poising force," and this is often as true for narratives themselves as for the characters therein. Babies often serve as forces of disruption or normatization in literary texts, and this panel seeks to explore the narrative work that the (pro)creative and (pro)created bodies of mothers and babies perform. This panel seeks to situate the creative work of female reproduction in the context of its narrative creation, taking seriously the textual creation and performance of fertility in literary texts.
