This panel seeks submissions that explore the dialectical engagement between masculinity and political subjectivity in the public space of honorability and reputation. To what degree do mid and late-eighteenth century texts, like Williams Godwin's Caleb Williams or Samuel Richardson's Sir Charles Grandison, interrogate masculine honor, aristocratic and otherwise, within the air of reform of the fin-de-siècle? How are the categories of honor and infamy expressed in masculine terms? Considering the novel in terms of its complex relationship to genre, how is its critique positioned in the space of contemporary political considerations? To what degree is male honorability understood in terms of personal politics?
Expressions of interest are invited from scholars across the humanities interested in philosophy, theatre and performance to contribute to an edited volume on:
"Žižek and Performance"
