Mapping Between Bodies and Sounds

The seminar organizers invite abstracts (250 words) for a proposed panel at ACLA, to be held in Toronto April 4-7, 2013. The conference theme is "Global Positioning Systems."

This seminar will address where philosophy, literature and music intersect, and how thinkers, writers and performers—drawing from early modern and materialist understandings of mathematics, music and anatomy to recent theories of cognition, perception, and the digital—have located this intersection in the body. We are in turn interested in how bodies in space, as producers, negotiators and vessels of sound, are themselves mapped by sound and music.

Dear Colleagues,

Submissions are still welcome for the following panel at the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies annual conference in Cleveland, Ohio, April 4-7, 2013. Abstracts must be submitted by September 15 to sadowjb@oneonta.edu.

Unromantic Charlotte Smith

Though Charlotte Smith's poetry tends to be apprehended by its relationship to romanticism, this panel will seek papers that view her poems and other work through the lens of earlier eighteenth-century discourse. Her relationship to prior works of poetry and poetic genres is an obvious topicof interest, but so might be her relationship to science, natural history,aesthetics, print, and other areas.

Best,
