45th Annual Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association
April 3-6, 2014
Deadline: September 30, 2013
This panel will explore the cultural history of the nonhuman in the long nineteenth century. The panel chairs invite papers that unpack historical ideas of the nonhuman or of the species barrier, especially in relation to disciplinary divisions in the arts and sciences occurring over the course of the nineteenth century. Proposals might focus on canonical cultural documents or more scientific forms like lectures, natural histories, anthropological studies, and so on.
