“Henry Fielding: New Approaches”
Call for Papers
43rd ASECS Annual Meeting
San Antonio, TX
March 22 – 25, 2012

Henry Fielding's fiction, drama, and non-fiction interrogate the moral stakes of negotiating between private and public selves at a crucial moment in the development of public discourse. This panel solicits proposals for papers describing new interdisciplinary approaches to the work of Henry Fielding that engage this historical context, creating connections with studies in eighteenth-century law, philosophy, or culture. Papers might address Fielding's treatment of sexual desire, gender performance, disability, criminal law, politics, or the act of storytelling itself. We especially seek proposals for presentations that will describe and demonstrate a novel methodological approach to Fielding's work. Proposals of roughly 250 words in length should be sent to abricker@stanford.edu.
