CALL FOR ARTICLES "Gender and/or Sexual Deviances in France at the End of
the Long Eighteenth Century"

I will be the editor of a new book on "Gender and/or Sexual Deviances in
France at the End of the Long Eighteenth Century", published by Cambridge
Scholars Publishing some time in 2009. I am seeking articles (5,000 -
10,000 words) dealing with what could have been perceived by the
hegemonic discourse as gender or sexual deviance at the end of the long
eighteenth century in France (approximately from the 1780’s to the
1815’s) . I am looking for articles that explore this particular topic
under a literary, cultural, aesthetic, historical, or socio-political
angle.

Staging Femininity: Women and the Theater (4/1/2008; SAMLA 11/7/2008â€"
11/9/2008)

Historically the relationship between women and the theater has been a site
of contestation. A woman’s place in the theater, whether as a character,
an actor, an author, or an attendee, often has drawn pointed social and
literary commentary. In keeping with the theme of the 2008 SAMLA
Convention, Drama, the 2008 SAMLA Women’s Studies Panel seeks paper
proposals that address the ways that femininity has been and is written,
performed, staged, and received in theatrical works.

Æffective Æsthetics: Representation of Emotion

Rice Graduate Symposium, September 26-27, 2008
Rice University, Houston, Texas

Affective representation in both artistic and lived experience is
frequently explained in terms of competing social, political, and
cultural systems that often nullify one another. Compounding the problem
is the tendency for affect to complicate how we think about
representation; it seems that the two are inextricable. Through
investigating representations of affect within a variety of fields, this
conference proposes to find inroads that will bring the competing claims
of various discourses together into productive dialogue.

Romantic Disorder:
Predisciplinarity and the Divisions of Knowledge 1750-1850

Description:
This conference explores the fluid and unfamiliar contours of
predisciplinarity/adisciplinarity in an expansive Romantic Century, 1750-

foundational moments, master narratives, and key figures of the Romantic
century, by opening them up to predisciplinary and eccentric objects,
encounters, and texts.
Modern disciplines like geology, history, and anthropology often trace
their origins to Romantic-era developments. “Literature,” as a distinct
