Inspired by Teresia Teaiwa’s definition of “militourism” as a “phenomenon by which a military or paramilitary force ensures the running of a tourist industry, and that same tourist industry masks the military force behind it,” this panel seeks to consider practices of “militourism” in a long historical context by soliciting papers with critical approaches to militarization, travel, and tourism from antiquity to the present day. We invite papers that engage questions of conquest, colonization, and empire; battlefield/memorial tourism; memoirs by soldiers, soldiers’ wives, and support staff; the intersections of military and tourist industries.
Consider submitting a CFP for the following proposed panel “Action, Inaction, and the Victorian Female” to be held at the 2019 NAVSA (Theme: “Media. Genre. The Generic”) in Columbus, Ohio, 17-19 October.

The long Eighteenth Century is the time when ocular-centric thought established itself in Western society. Images and illustrations permeated textual spaces to the point that few books were printed without illustrations. From arts to sciences via fiction and geographic literature, the eighteenth-century citizen was therefore exposed to wide array of visual and textual combinations as part of his/her everyday life.
