CALL FOR PAPERS: SPEAKING NATURE
INTERDISCIPLINARY NINETEENTH-CENTURY STUDIES CONFERENCE
Pitzer College, Claremont, CA (March 31-April 3, 2011)
CFP deadline: November 1, 2010
How did the nineteenth century conceive, construct, and represent the physical world? In what ways did nature as an ideology and/or material reality shape the nineteenth century? How did the nineteenth century understand the relation of human beings to nature? The 2011 Interdisciplinary Nineteenth-Century Studies (INCS) Conference invites proposals that investigate any aspect of this topic from multiple interdisciplinary perspectives, including and/or integrating Literature, History, Science, Art History, Environmental Studies, Law, Philosophy, Sociology, Anthropology, Music, Economics, and Theology.
