This panel invites papers investigating the slippery boundary between
Romanticism and popular gothic fiction from the late eighteenth and
early nineteenth centuries. Possible papers could examine gothic dramas
by seminal figures in Romantic poetry (Coleridge's /Osorio/,
Wordsworth's /Borderers/), the use of gothic motifs in Romantic poetry,
the appearance of Romantic poetry within gothic prose (in Radcliffe's or
Smith's novels), reception history and Romantic poets' self-positioning
in relation to gothic writing, the gendering of these two simultaneous
movements, and personal relationships among these writers (Matthew
Lewis's friendships with Scott and Byron). Papers with an inter-generic

The animal is something of a hot topic right now: MLA 2006 will
boast no less than three panels
devoted in some way to it. So much of what is being said and done on
the topic, however, is
framed by the question: what is the animal for the human. That is,
this work directly follows
the paradigm set down by Giorgio Agamben in his book L'aperto:
L'uomo e l'animale (2002),
taking the animal to constitute the human. This panel asks: Is there
another way to understand
the animal? And can we find that way (or indeed, ways) in the
eighteenth century?

Collection: Form and Genre in the Literature of the Long Eighteenth Century, 1660-1830
   
  Articles (6000-7000, including notes) are invited for a collection on form and genre in the literature of the long eighteenth century. While the novel has traditionally received sustained critical analysis, non-fictional prose and poetic genres have usually been neglected. It is hoped that a wide variety of genres and (poetic) forms will be explored. Papers that deal with hybridisation of genres are especially welcome. Also, contextualisations of genres such as the ode in European terms are encouraged.
