Natures and Spaces of Enlightenment
The Sixteenth David Nichol Smith Seminar in Eighteenth-Century Studies
Griffith University and the University of Queensland
Brisbane, 13-15 December 2017
The Australian and New Zealand Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies is pleased to announce that the sixteenth David Nichol Smith Seminar, Natures and Spaces of Enlightenment, will be held in Brisbane, Australia, at Griffith University and the University of Queensland on the 13th to 15th December 2017.
This panel explores the spatial limits of bodies in early modern Europe. The spatial limits of bodies, broadly conceived, refer to the determinant role that real or abstract boundaries play on the physical and/or imagined body. These limits can take many forms, including aesthetic conventions, battlefields, domestic confines, geographic boundaries, and religious sites. Notions of the body may be equally diverse, extending to animals, communities, environments, and genders. Panel discussion will provide a rich examination of intersections between spatial perspectives and studies of early modern bodies.

The Romanticism panel is seeking papers on any aspect of Romanticism, but we are particularly interested in papers that will address the conference theme "The Sense of Sight: Visuality, Visibility, and Ways of Seeing." As part of the material culture in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, writers have attempted to reify themselves through textual or visual representations (e.g., letters, fiction, verse, and fine art through portraiture, etc.). Paper proposals that delve into the value of such cultural constructions in the context of the Romantic era and consider the effect of the writer's self-fashioning and self-projecting representations are especially welcome.
