Inter-Material Affections: Intimacy and Ecology in the 19th Century
A Proposed Panel for C19: The Society of Nineteenth-Century Americanists
Berkeley, California, April 12-15, 2012

Papers exploring how Americans in the nineteenth century conceived ecology as a form of intimacy will be considered for a proposed panel for the 2012 C19 conference. Papers should explore how 19th-century conceptions of ecology aided two overlapping projects: (1) expanding possibilities for intra-human intimacies and (2) migrating intimacy beyond the interpersonal to what we might call the inter-material.

Possible areas for focus might include, but are by no means limited to:
