>We are seeking submissions for a collection of previously unpublished
>essays on Image, Sound, and Touch in the Nineteenth Century.
>
>How might the image look if we approach it through the sensations and
>technologies of sound and touch?  What can the nineteenth century teach us
>about the inter-related and remedial qualities of media?  In what ways do
>we reproduce the apparent ocular-centrism of the nineteenth century in our
>current critical practices?
>
>Critical investigation into nineteenth-century visual culture has not been
>lacking.  Over the last few decades, there have been significant and
>groundbreaking studies on the material book, image-text relations,
>commodity culture, visual pleasures and anxieties, spectacles and the
>carnivalesque, museums and collections, visual geographies, and the history
>of the observer.  More recent studies of the visual have expanded the field
>by focusing on adaptation and the period's new image-making media:
>photography, stereography, early cinema.  Visuality was central in a period
>distinctive for its salvo of new encounters with images; however, the
>critical focus on the visual has become somewhat entrenched in
>nineteenth-century studies, isolating the image and obscuring historical
>research on other forms of mediation in the period.  This essay collection
>proposes a new life for the image through a renewed dialogue with sound and
>touch in the nineteenth century, potentially suggesting other expressions
>of the body and reshaping our current understanding of visual culture.
>
>Although the image remains central to scholarship, there has been a recent
>turn to sound in the nineteenth century.  This work has drawn our attention
>to urban soundscapes, new forms of recorded voice, print culture and sound
>technology, and, finally, prosody.  In adding to earlier, albeit
>overshadowed, research on literacy and orality as well as the printed
>voice, this emerging field of inquiry promises to take the study of
>nineteenth-century media in new directions and finally address the sounds
>of Victorian literature, neglected even by the New Critics when Victorian
>literature was out of fashion and deemed unworthy of close listening.   The
>editors encourage submissions of original research in this field,
>especially the kind of work which incites us to rethink visual culture,
>media and mediation, and corporeal practices.
>
>The nineteenth-century body remains radically inaccessible because of the
>critical dominance of the Freudian repressive hypothesis and Foucauldian
>discourse analysis.  While the nineteenth-century body has remained in our
>critical "field of vision," repeatedly figured, for instance, in studies of
>gender and sexuality, it has remained suppressed, abstracted, or
>objectified.  Research on spasmodics, sensation writing, shopping, and
>urban flanerie, however, offers opportunities to explore the feeling and
>sensing nineteenth-century body and to foreground haptic experiences after
>the blinding effect of visual theory.  Submissions to the collection may
>build on this work to stimulate a rethinking of the nineteenth-century body
>in the realm of the visual and acoustic.
>
>The collection's overlapping focus on image, touch, and sound in the
>nineteenth century is enabled by emerging interdisciplinary scholarship on
>print and media culture.  We invite historical and theoretical approaches
>to nineteenth-century visual, acoustic, and haptic practices and encounters
>in the nineteenth century, particularly in relation to their complex
>intersections and negotiations with concepts of old and new media and
>mediation/remediation.  We welcome interdisciplinary approaches, historical
>case studies, various national locations, and diverse theoretical
>orientations.
>
>Our collection aims to move our understanding of nineteenth-century media
>culture in new directions with a combination of historical studies and
>theoretical reflections that will not only add to historical conversations
>about the nineteenth-century "media explosion," but also speak to ongoing
>conversations about new media and mediation today.  Because of the
>interdisciplinary nature of this collection, it will have wide appeal to
>scholars interested in print and media culture, visual culture and theory,
>women's studies, and cultural studies.
>
>Potential paper topics will include, but are by no means limited to:
>
>History of Mediation/Remediation
>Old Media
>New Media
>Media Interfaces
>Medium of Theory
>Media & Cities
>Media & Empire
>Ideal Book
>Recorded Voice
>Media & Metrics
>Radical Media
>Crimes of Writing
>Cultures of Collection & Display
>Media & the Production of Knowledge
>
>Abstracts should be no more than 500 words. Please ensure that a title,
>your name, affiliation and email address are included with your abstract.
>
>Abstracts are to be submitted to Colette Colligan ([log in to unmask]) and
>Margaret Linley ([log in to unmask]) by July 31st, 2006.  Final papers are due
>by October 1st, 2006.
