Amidst growing population and urban redevelopment, eighteenth-century cartographers turned to maps to structure the changing size and shape of cities. For example, topographical maps provided readers with details that visually enclosed and contained the increasing sprawl of a rebuilding London. Textual surveys, by such cartographers as William Stow, used narrative prose to expand the topographical view in order to show “where every Street, Lane, Court, Alley…or any other Place…is situated.” These maps and surveys flooded the market in the 1740s, the decade which also witnessed the intensifying growth of the novel.

In the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries “science” meant certain and systematic knowledge, so that what we now think of as humanities (for example, aesthetics or philosophy) could be sciences, while sciences such as chemistry (according to Kant) might still be arts.

JANE AUSTEN & MEMORY

 

The Motto (from Mansfield Park):

       Fanny: “If any one faculty of our nature may be called more wonderful than the rest, I do think it is memory. There seems something more speakingly incomprehensible in the powers, the failures, the inequalities of memory, than in any other of our intelligences. The memory is sometimes so retentive, so serviceable, so obedient – at others, so bewildered and so weak – and at others again, so tyrannic, so beyond controul! – We are to be sure a miracle every way – but our powers of recollecting and of forgetting, do seem peculiarly past finding out.”

The American Romance in 2016

his panel addresses the American romance in light of recent developments in early American studies. While many Britishists accepted the ascendancy of the anglophone novel, others challenged this teleology, and the transatlantic turn has invited us to consider whether the romance genre survived the New World. The existence of a colonial romance would challenge the “birth” of the American genre in the wake of Scott’s Ivanhoe (1819), and revising that literary history could in turn broaden American romance beyond a hoary pro-slavery ideology. Post-WWII critics arguing for an American romance tradition often cite Hawthorne’s own christening of his novels as “romances” as a key piece of evidence.
