Romantic Disorder:
Predisciplinarity and the Divisions of Knowledge 1750-1850
(London, 18-20 June 2009)
 
Description:
This conference explores the fluid and unfamiliar contours of
predisciplinarity/adisciplinarity in an expansive Romantic Century, 1750-
1850. We envision this conference as an opportunity to defamiliarize
foundational moments, master narratives, and key figures of the Romantic
century, by opening them up to predisciplinary and eccentric objects,
encounters, and texts.

their origins to Romantic-era developments. “Literature,” as a distinct

Dr. Rosa E. Soto

We have two papers and are seeking 2-3 more for a panel on
representations of Latino and Latin American masculinities in literature
and popular media. The first paper EXAMINES HOW TV AND FILM images of
overbearing Latina mothers FRAME Latino men AS BOTH MACHOS AND "MAMA'S
BOYS." The second paper examines the tenuous relationship of hegemonic
masculinity to gender, national identity, and family in Cristina Garcia’s
novel, Monkey Hunting.

This panel, sponsored by the College English Association at the 2008
Conference of the Modern Language Association in San Francisco (December

these models should reflect a proven track record of faculty success in
both design and implementation.
