Premodern Desires: The Erotic from the Symposium to the Inferno - NEMLA 2022

Ever since the publication of Foucault’s multi-volume work The History of Sexuality, scholarship, whether theoretically, historically, or literarily minded, has reckoned with the call to develop less anachronistic methodologies to analyze premodern expressions of desire. While scholars such as David Halperin and Susan Lanser have risen to the challenge of Foucault’s text and expanded his analysis to address feminine and queer desires, both generally and within their specific periods of study, these theoretical and methodological strides in the history of sexuality have penetrated fields at various rates. This seminar seeks to help remedy this disciplinary issue, particularly within the literature of medieval studies and classics.

I have 12 great essays for a volume called Mythological Equines in Film (Series: Equine Creations: Imagining Horses in Literature and Film), which is meant to be paired with Mythological Equines in Children’s Literature (Series: Equine Creations: Imagining Horses in Literature and Film), which is full with 21 essays.

In order to keep them approximately the same size, I am looking for 2-3 more essays to round out the film collection. Harry Potter and Narnia are well covered, but other topics are open.

The abstract deadline is Sept. 30, 2021. The deadline for essays will be February 1, 2022.
