This year's Fabricating the Body panel is soliciting proposals for papers that explore the notion of bodies in our post-human or post-modern culture. Given this year's theme of "Arts and Sciences," this panel seeks papers that consider how scientific inquiry and philosophy has impacted our understanding of bodies in media (literature, film, comics, video games etc.) or as consumers of media. Possible topics include, but are not limited to, theories of the post-human or post-modern body; (dis)abled, queer, global, marginalized, etc.
According to the OED, the word tourism enters the English lexicon at the dawn of the nineteenth century, thus institutionalizing the notion that travel is a necessary component of personal development. As crowds of earnest bourgeois travelers displaced the solitary young aristocrat on the Grand Tour a vast body of literature concerned with both mundane and exalted facets of foreign places cropped up to fulfill a new set of needs. Owing to the diversity of places to which individuals traveled and the many different reasons for doing so, these needs were diverse and multiform.
