Filling the Vacuum of Space and Time in Eighteenth Century - Due September 15

ASECS Panel - Brian Tatum

Scientific discoveries in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries led to a revolution in the epistemology of space and time as intellectuals such as Anna Barbauld and Thomas Wright expanded the scope of these concepts to infinite or nearly infinite regions. Proposals about the infinite size of the universe and the discovery of deep time created a vacuum that philosophers and writers quickly tried to fill. This led to expansion both in content and form of literary texts. This panel seeks to explore the connection between eighteenth-century scientific advancements and literature.

This panel welcomes papers interested in exploring these or related topics:

Literary History and Life Writing: The Development of Nonfiction in the Eighteenth Century

updated: 
Saturday, August 22, 2015 - 3:38pm
American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies panel

This panel will investigate the emergence of life writing in the eighteenth century and consider the ways in which genres of life writing work in relation to literary history and canon formation. From Colley Cibber's An Apologie for the Life of Colley Cibber to William Mason's The Life and Letters of Thomas Gray to Jean-Jacques Rousseau's The Confessions to Samuel Johnson's Lives of the Poets, life writing in the century took many different forms. These and other writers of autobiography and biography used new nonfiction genres to respond to harsh criticism of their work, defend particular genres from criticism, memorialize literary heroes, defend a set of literary genres, and begin to create what later became the literary canon.

Literary history is full of forgetting—both forced and natural. Manuscripts and books have been forgotten as a result of conquest, language changes, and politics. Other texts have been forgotten due to their physical condition: sole manuscripts are hidden away in archives, libraries burn, and paper disintegrates. Many medieval texts that are now central to the English literary canon, such as Beowulf, Piers Plowman, and the Book of Margery Kempe, were virtually unknown until the nineteenth, or even twentieth centuries. Later texts, from the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries, have been forgotten due to changes in taste, to their originally ephemeral nature, or to the sheer quantity of works that were published.
