It is common for studies in the Energy Humanities to identify the “late eighteenth century” as a backstory to the cultures, industries, and sciences of coal that emerged in the nineteenth century. This panel is interested in questioning that periodization with more complex genealogies or alternate imaginaries of energy throughout the eighteenth century.

The Eighteenth Century Fragment

updated: 
Sunday, September 18, 2022 - 2:07pm
American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 3, 2022

Material fragments such as a scrap of ancient poetry, a fractured sculpture, a torn diary page, or a partially written novel warranted increasing attention during the eighteenth century. The unfinished aesthetic of fragments offered an experience that was contrary to the sense of completion provided by whole and polished texts, and provided access to voices that would be otherwise inaccessible and lost. How do we understand this fascination with fragments in their various aesthetic, material, and political conditions? This panel invites contributions of papers on any aspect of the fragment. Papers may consider a single work, author, or artist; a theoretical approach; individual fragments or their role in larger works.

In the rapid pivot to remote teaching at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, many instructors turned to tools like Hypothes.is and Perusall that allow students to engage in social reading and annotation. These same tools are also built into many digital editions (like those in Literature in Context) and multimedia scholarly publishing platforms like Manifold and Scalar. The Digital Humanities Caucus calls for presentations on annotation in an eighteenth-century and/or contemporary context.

"Alternative” Medicine in the Eighteenth-Century

updated: 
Thursday, September 1, 2022 - 11:22pm
American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 3, 2022

Competing concepts of “medicine” and “healing” abound, with roots in our period; what might we think of as “alternative” medicine? Competing conceptions of medicine were proposed by Bruonians (John Brown’s binary of stimulant vs sedative) and Cullenians (followers of William Cullen), and yet another by Samuel Hahnemann (the law of similars, the law of the minimal dose). We might consider physiological interventions (surgeries, purgings) in contrast with more palliative approaches aimed at restoring “nature’s balance.” The origins of obstetrics (and its displacement of midwives), anatomical dissection and pathology (and their relation to criminality), and mesmerism are linked to famous male figures but also their critics.

Teaching the Global Eighteenth Century [Roundtable at the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies Annual Meeting, March 9-11, 2023, St. Louis, MO]

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 3, 2022

We seek presentations on any aspect of teaching the eighteenth-century within a global context. Presentations might focus on strategies for teaching transcultural and transnational encounters; travel, trade, or colonialism; eighteenth-century world literatures; or any text or set of texts—written, oral, visual, aural, or material—that “globalizes” students’ engagement with the eighteenth century. We welcome presentations on the teaching of subject matter that exposes, interrogates, unsettles, decenters, or displaces a Eurocentric world view.

Genres of the Atlantic

In his seminal work, Poetics of Relation (1990), Édouard Glissant posited the term “commonplace” as a means to rethink the role of genre in a transatlantic frame. Taking as its object the "flood of convergences, publishing itself in the guise of the commonplace,” this formulation complicates any attempt to read genre as a closed system of inherited traits. Rather, the notion of the commonplace draws our attention to the unspoken norms that sustain literary communities across time and space. Positive in Glissant’s account, commonplaces have also worked to police the boundaries of what counts as literature and who is counted within its canons of literary value.

Pictures of Health in the Eighteenth Century

What does it mean to call someone “the picture of health”?

The WHO’s 1949 constitution stated that “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” More recently “One Health”—a model of health that includes the social contexts and environmental situation that limits or conduces to both individual and communal healthfulness—has emerged.

The organizers of the 2023 BWWC invite papers and panel proposals interpreting the theme of ‘Liberties’ in global and transatlantic British women’s writing from the long eighteenth century to the present. We ask participants to consider ‘liberties’ not only as a political abstraction but also as part of material and experiential subjectivity. Interpreted broadly, liberties include (but are not limited to) legal rights and freedoms, liberty of the person and bodily autonomy, liberties of creative and artistic expression, liberty of profession and vocation, freedom of movement both physical and social, and self-determination in the private and public spheres.
