CFP for ASECS panel:
“Popular fiction after Richardson”
DEADLINE: September 15th 2007

This panel scrutinizes the idea of eighteenth-century “popular fiction,”
particularly in the wake of Samuel Richardson's groundbreaking novels. It
asks how this discursive marketplace registered the “literary” and helped
to determine what we now regard as canonical.

The Science of Sensibility
Edmund Burke's Philosophical Enquiry:
250 Years Later

Conference at the Institute of Philosophy (University of Leuven, Belgium)
17-18 December 2007

Attracting philosophers, politicians, artists as well as the educated
reader, Edmund Burke's Philosophical Enquiry, first published in 1757, was a
milestone in western thinking. This conference will take the 250th
anniversary of the Philosophical Enquiry as an occasion to reassess Burke's
prominence in the history of ideas. Situated on the threshold between early
modern philosophy and the Enlightenment, Burke's oeuvre combines reflections
on the arts, politics, history, emotions and the sciences.

In 1701, John Dennis characterized poetry as “pathetick” and “passionate”
“speech.” Twenty-five years later, James Thomson described his poetic
ambition to awaken “the moral sentiment” in his readers. Such statements
notwithstanding, the place of poetry in the culture of sentimentâ€"with its
powerful fusion of moral and aesthetic philosophy, sensationist psychology,
middle-class ideology, literary practice, and reformist politicsâ€"remains
opaque, in part because the revisionist scholarship of the past two decades
has tended to focus on the novel. This panel will feature papers that seek
to invigorate our understanding of the intersection between sentiment and

Twenty-minute papers are invited for consideration as part of the 'Printed
Miscellanies' panel at the forthcoming ASECS annual meeting, which takes
place at Portland, Oregon, from March 27-April 3 2008.

This panel explores the aesthetic and material aspects of
eighteenth-century printed miscellanies. Individual papers might focus on
particular miscellanies (such as those by Dryden and Tonson, Pope and
Swift, or Robert Dodsley, for instance) but all participants will be
encouraged to consider some of the following, broader questions:

CFP: "The idea of Europe in the 18th century" (6/30/2007;9/20/2007-9/22/2007)

The eighteenth century is often considered as a key period in the emergence of a
broader European consciousness and the synchronous decline of older imagined
communities such as Occident and Christianity. At the end of the eighteenth
century, however, the age of "old Europe" based on dynasties, elite culture and
balance of power politics was profoundly shaken, if not destroyed, by the
French Revolution and the ensuing international instability. A heated
discursive battle over the redefinition of Europe ensued.
