CFP: Neurology and Modernity (6/1/06; collection)

Saturday, March 18, 2006 - 6:37pm
Andrew Shail

We are seeking essays for the collection *Neurology and Modernity*. While
psychoanalysis has been one of the most dominating discourses within accounts
of modernity, offering explanations of the modern as a fundamentally nervous
state, what has been less examined is the influence of its parent discipline,
neurology. Continuing its own account of nerve force and brain function
alongside the psychoanalytic notion of the unconscious, neurology was largely
simultaneous with what we refer to as modernity.
