Call for Papers: International Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies conference, Edinburgh, July 2019.
CFP: Deviation, Dissension, Defiance: Protesting in the Hispanic Enlightenment
This panel seeks papers that explore the theme of identities that originate in protest in the Hispanic eighteenth century. We welcome proposals that look at how different environments (rural, urban), diverse mediums (textual, visual, oral) and both elite and popular contexts (from a legitimized resistance through dialogue and the tools of reason in circles such as the press or tertulias to other impromptu, unstable and disordered channels such as pasquinades, street demonstrations or songs) open new spaces of subjectivity and agency from which to question the rules of discipline and challenge an accepted notion of (political, economic, social, religious, sexual, racial) culture. We are especially interested in how subjects define themselves through acts of deviation that prompt them to think and to act, the landmark of a modern identity. Please send 250-word abstracts to Sara Muñoz (email@example.com) by August 1, 2018.
