Gendered Ecologies and Nineteenth-Century Women Writers

Tuesday, June 6, 2017 - 9:16pm
Northeast MLA Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

If ecology is without nature, as Timothy Morton provocatively argued in 2007, then one may wonder of ecology without the feminine as a corollary. For nature, much like the feminine, has been fetishized, exoticized, and romanticized as a signifier emptied out—a sort of lacuna. If we can be at ease with the gap, vacancy, or interval and, perhaps, theorize about the unfilled space while sorting out the inconsistencies of what it means to represent nature, the feminine, and androgyny, then we might begin to trace the valuable contributions of 19th-century women writers to the development of the term oecologia coined by Ernst Haeckel in 1866 and beyond.

NeMLA 2018: (Im)possible Bodies: Spaces and the Body in Early Modern Europe

Tuesday, May 30, 2017 - 4:59pm
Stephanie Shiflett (BU) and Ashley M. Voeks (UT Austin)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 29, 2017

This panel explores the spatial limits of bodies in early modern Europe. The spatial limits of bodies, broadly conceived, refer to the determinant role that real or abstract boundaries play on the physical and/or imagined body. These limits can take many forms, including aesthetic conventions, battlefields, domestic confines, geographic boundaries, and religious sites. Notions of the body may be equally diverse, extending to animals, communities, environments, and genders. Panel discussion will provide a rich examination of intersections between spatial perspectives and studies of early modern bodies.
