long eighteenth century. A substantial and useful body of work in this =

This is a call for proposals for a seminar on "Constructing Deviant
Identities in Eighteenth-Century Media" at next year's ASECS at
Montreal.
In the seminar, we shall discuss how subjects who deviated from what
was considered the 'legitimate' norm (e.g. criminals, whores,
homosexuals, lunatics) were represented in different
eighteenth-century media contexts, such as pamphlets, caricatures,
prints, novels, or painting.
Papers should address how these representations worked rather than who or w=
hat
was represented. I.e., in how far are exclusive social practices
realized and reflected in forms of representation that were typical of part=
icular media?

CFP: Literature and the Addicted Subject (11/15/05; collection)

Comitini, Patricia Prof.

We're soliciting papers for a volume tentatively titled Literature and
the Addicted Subject, 1700-Present. This volume will examine how the
post-Romantic conception of literature constructs both the possibility
and our understanding of addiction. While there are collections and
books that discuss the addictions of authors or representations of
addiction, the focus of this book is substantially different: it seeks
to examine how addiction is a historical phenomenon that is enabled by
particular ideological and cultural preconditions. Thus, we do not
assume addiction's existence prima facie, and do not assume it is one
thing at all times. Addiction needs particular historical preconditions:

Fanny Parks), to America (Isabella Bird, Clara Bromley, France Trollope), to
Africa (Mary Kingsley) or to Australia (Daisy Bates) gave rise to

Call for Papers: The Figure of the Coquette

The proposed collection of essays seeks to explore the figure of the
coquette in the long eighteenth century (1660-1830), with the aim of
understanding and theorizing the cultural context that produced the figure,
her historical evolution, and her representation in European culture. We
are particularly interested in the coquette as a key site for debates about
women's nature and female roles during this period, ranging from the
misogynist critique of the coquette to explorations of her social power.
Comparatist analyses and cultural studies approaches are welcome, as are
essays addressing modern or contemporary rewritings of the figure of the
coquette
