During the past few years, the sections of comparative and medieval studies in
the University of Lille 3 have been studying together how historical or
literary figures are received and transmitted to the later generations,  i.e.
the reception of Antiquity, of Virgil from the Middle-Ages to the XXth
century, the posterity of the Renaissance. Persuing the same aim, we would
like to focus our attention on the figure of Louis XI.

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?
