This panel will explore the cultural history of the nonhuman in the long nineteenth century. We invite papers that unpack historical ideas of the nonhuman or of the species barrier, especially in relation to disciplinary divisions in the arts and sciences occurring over the course of the nineteenth century. Proposals might focus on canonical cultural documents or more scientific forms like lectures, natural histories, anthropological studies, and so on. Please email abstracts of no more than 300 words to by September 30, 2013.
