This panel explores how literature represents the relationship between humans and animals in a range of early modern texts. How do representations of the mutable boundary between humans and animals differ depending on their generic context? How do concerns about literary kinds relate to and intersect with concerns about species categorization? To what extent does generic mingling and experimentation relate to the varying representations of inter-species similitude and difference? Send 300 word abstracts to Julia Gingerich <email@example.com>
It might be said that regional literature has a photographic memory. Dialect, landscape, micro-culture and spatiality are drawn with exacting precision. The connection between art and authors, or art and regional literature, may be causal or merely influential. This panel will explore how the term ekphrasis has grown in inclusivity, how regional literature intersects with the sister arts, and what these connections imply. Submit 250 word abstracts to Brandi So, Stony Brook University, Brandi.So@stonybrook.edu

Deadline: September 30. Please submit your 300 - 500 word abstracts along with your name and affiliation via email to Shelly Jansen, Rochester Institute of Technology, firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
