This panel seeks papers that explore the representation and function of sensory experience in the nineteenth century, with an emphasis on strange, unstable or unreliable sensory episodes and their larger literary and cultural significance. Rather than subordinating body to mind, how do nineteenth-century texts reveal an emergent cultural interest in the material body and its physiological particularities? We are especially interested in papers that investigate the role of sensory representations across disciplines and explore bodily matters at the intersection of nineteenth-century literature, science, philosophy or visual art.

Although experiences of disability have been an integral part of American life, disability has traditionally been approached as a research object in medicine and the social and rehabilitative sciences and, as Brenda Brueggemann maintains, continues to be dominated by the medical discourse up until today despite an increase in alternative approaches. Ann Jurecic has argue that well until the second half of the century, little attention had indeed been devoted to individuals' first-person perspectives on their bodies and selves as well as on a disabling social and physical surrounding.
