The Literary History of Sexuality (panel)

This panel addresses the relationship between sexuality and literature in the long eighteenth
century. Critics and
historians, from a variety of perspectives, have suggested that "something happened" to
conceptualizations (and
practices) of the sexual and the literary in and around the eighteenth century--although what
that "something"
was remains an open question. Accordingly, this panel will explore the mutually shaping
relations between
sexuality and literature, from Restoration to Romanticism. Engagements with Foucault
(critical and/or
sympathetic) are welcome but not essential.

Please send abstracts to by September 15, 2006. ASECS requires
panel organizers to
submit participant names by Sept. 30, 2006.
