This panel will explore connections between mapping, cartographic =
discourse, and the production of British national identity during the =
long eighteenth century. A substantial and useful body of work in this =
area is available within Renaissance studies, initiated, in large =
measure, by Richard Helgerson's now seminal Forms of Nationhood. =
According to Helgerson, the production of the national body is =
dependent, to an extent, on cartographic representation in that it =

and, more importantly, to imaginatively project a space in which they =
may realize themselves as subjects of the nation. However, does 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:
