"Bloodwork: the politics of the body 1500-1900"

updated: 
Tuesday, September 7, 2010 - 9:44am
Department of English, University of Maryland College Park

Conference Organizers: Kimberly Coles , Ralph Bauer, Zita Nunes, Carla L. Peterson

This conference will explore how conceptions of the blood—one of the four bodily fluids known as humors in the early modern period—permeate discourses of human difference from 1500 to 1900. "Bloodwork" begins with the assumption that the concept of "race" is still under construction and that our understanding of the term would profit through an engagement with its long, evolving, history. Specifically, it asks how fluid transactions of the body have been used in different eras and different cultures to justify existing social arrangements.

updated: 
Monday, August 30, 2010 - 2:59pm
John Savarese, Rutgers University

This panel invites papers that examine how literary texts perform knowledge, and how literature becomes an object of scholarly knowledge in a variety of disciplinary settings. Panelists might address literary representations of the cleric, the virtuoso, or the pedant; the use of scholarly paratexts (the gloss, the appendix, the footnote); or, more broadly, the influence of disciplinarity and professionalization on the literary text. For more information, see below.

Send abstracts to Sean Barry, sean.barry@rutgers.edu, and John Savarese, john.savarese@rutgers.edu, by 9/30/10.
