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.

"Elusive faces of the feminine. Writing and photography, face to face"

3-5 May 2007

This conference is about the relationship between photography and
writing, and the places where they meet, dialogue, cross and flee
each other. In this relationship between the photographic and the
literary, we are interested in the importance of the female face, an
alterity that neither medium can capture.
