Call for Papers: High-, Middle-, Lowbrow

A panel for the Fifth Annual Cultural Studies Association meeting at Portland State University, April 19-21, 2007.

This panel seeks papers that explore the concept of the "brows" of taste as they function in contemporary cultural studies. Do the brows have any heuristic or descriptive value in the twenty-first century? Are they more useful as a way of understanding the past? What can they help us say about the way cultural texts build cultural capital or destroy it? How are they linked to or separated from socioeconomic class?

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.
