The mixed formal properties of certain texts across the history of philosophy and literature resist any attempt at their easy classification within either of these traditional generic categories. Such philosophical-literary hybrid texts seem to deny the adequacy of either strictly philosophical or literary form for expressing a particular content or inducing some affective or intellectual experience. This panel seeks to explore questions raised by the philosophical-literary hybrid text, in all its historical and geographical variation. What is the relationship between the hybrid form of some philosophical-literary text and its content? What are the stakes of philosophical-literary hybridity for some author?
Seeking a third (and maybe fourth) panelist.
The following is a brief description of the panel:
Because of recent scholarship in anthropology, psychology, and rhetoric, emotion has become widely understood not as innate or universal—but embodied and performative. Recent scholarship in composition has begun to consider if and how emotion is acknowledged, defined, and performed in composition classrooms. This panel hopes to add to this discussion both theoretically and practically by looking at the ethical and pedagogical implications of incorporating a study of emotion into composition courses and by proposing ways in which a rhetoric of emotion can be utilized and scrutinized in the classroom.

Early Modern Women: An Interdisciplinary Journal (EMWJ) invites submissions to an interdisciplinary Forum on Early Modern Women and Memory, slated for publication in Volume 6 (2011). What is the relationship between women and memory? Are there gendered ways of remembering and forgetting the past? How were women's memories represented in early modern culture by men and by women? Which aspects of women's history have not been remembered? How did members of different religions, classes, and ethnicities shape both their own individual memories and also cultural memory? How does the gendered experience of their religious customs influence the relations of women and memory?

Since Richard von Krafft-Ebing's first clinical naming of "masochism" as a perversion located in men in 1890, masochisms and masochists have been approached through a variety of lenses: scientific, sexological, artistic, literary, psychiatric, and dramatic. Importantly, the most prolific period regarding the circulation of ideas and theories about masochism is the same period that produced the modernist text.
