NEASECS 2012 Wesleyan University, CT: The Courtesan-Celebrity

updated: 
Monday, March 26, 2012 - 9:53pm
NEMLA

This panel invites papers that explore the period's textual engagement with female notoriety. Defoe's Roxana (1724), for example, follows the earlier tradition of the whore biography, reimagined as a spiritual autobiography. These "histories" of whores, written about and by women from both poor and privileged families, are unsparing in their social critique; these women's grievances include the lack of proper education for girls, abuse, poverty, incest, and sexual predation. Yet, a few "high-profile" courtesan-celebrities like Nell Gwynn and Kitty Fisher relished the limelight, and whose lives became popular and profitable subjects in the print market.

NEASECS 2012 Conference at Wesleyan University 10/11-14: Godwin, Burke, the Political Subject and Intertextuality

Sunday, March 25, 2012 - 6:44pm
Kathleen Alves/City University of New York

This panel seeks submissions that explore the dialectical engagement between Godwin's philosophical or socio-political works and his fiction. The intertextual model for the mapping of texts and their influences provokes questions about the nature of textual production. Caleb Williams addresses the disaster of competing identities in servitude and autonomy, formally considered "natural" through aristocratic power structures, in a shifting political climate of radicalism that challenges Burkean ideology. Political Justice is his first response to Burke's Reflections on the Revolution of France, while Caleb Williams offers another answer to Burke's text.
