Picturing the Nineteenth Century - March 22-25, 2012 - University of Kentucky

updated: 
Wednesday, July 13, 2011 - 9:53am
Interdisciplinary Nineteenth Century Studies Association

Though its title foregrounds art and visual culture, this conference will treat "picturing" in all its many senses: imagining, representing, framing, mapping. We invite papers and panels that consider how the nineteenth century represented itself to itself – through depictions of subjectivity, history, and culture; through emerging technologies and disciplines; through self-conscious "meta" attempts to understand methods of representation. We also encourage papers that consider how our own technologies and disciplines create multiple pictures of "the nineteenth century." Interdisciplinary papers and panels are especially welcome.
