Sensing and Feeling: The Embodiment of Experience in the Eighteenth 
Century
 
            The Center for Eighteenth-Century Studies at Indiana 
University is pleased to announce the sixth Bloomington 
Eighteenth-Century Workshop, to be held on May 23-26, 2007. The 
workshop is part of a series of annual interdisciplinary events that 
has been running since 2002, with 20-30 scholars presenting and 
discussing pre-circulated papers on a broad topic in a congenial 
setting.
 
            Our topic for 2007 is “Sensing and Feeling: The  embodiment 
of experience in the eighteenth century”. Connecting mental and social 
practices to bodily sensation became crucial in many different venues 
during the eighteenth century. How were cognition, experience, and 
feelings understood to be linked to the body? What were the mediations 
between the sensorium and religious, social, and political practices?
 
            Our aim is to go beyond the Foucauldian notion that the 
body is above all a medium of power – suffering its consequences or 
heroically offering resistance to it. We seek to provide a more nuanced 
perspective on the body by investigating sensation, embodiment, and the 
connections between them, at the levels both of experience and of 
conceptualization of experience. How did understandings of the 
embodiment of cognition and affect shift over time? What sort of social 
and psychological practices were enabled by thinking of the senses in 
certain ways? How, in turn, did these practices prompt a rethinking of 
the nexus of psychic and physiological realities? And how did 
representational practices (visual, musical, textual, scientific, 
dramatic, etc.) respond to such shifts?
 
Papers might address topics such as:
 
• the shifting relationship between sensing and feeling
• the isolation and division of the senses
• sensorial mutilation, phantom limbs and prostheses
• the relationship of "inner sense" to the outer senses
• the changing relations between religious experience (conviction, 
conversion, enthusiasm, etc.) to the senses and embodiment
• aesthetics and aesthesiology
• the conceptualization of the embodiment of thought and feeling in 
different spheres (physiology, philosophy, medicine, anthropology, 
drama, literary criticism, etc.)
• the place of embodiment of thought or feeling in the changing 
understandings of the relationship between body and soul
• the social organization of the senses
• the embodiment of sympathy, pity, compassion, and empathy
• skin and touch
• eighteenth-century texts and institutions seen from the vantage of 
current research in cognitive science and related disciplines
• the relations of sight or vision to the other embodied senses in 
eighteenth-century science and natural philosophy
 
            The workshop format will consist of focused discussion of 
four to six pre-circulated papers a day, amid socializing and 
refreshment. The workshop will draw both on the wide community of 
eighteenth-century scholars and on the large and growing group of 
scholars in this field at Indiana University-Bloomington. The workshop 
will cover most expenses of those scholars chosen to present their 
work: accommodations, travel (up to a certain limit), and most meals.
          
            We are asking for applications to be sent to us by Monday, 
8th January 2007. The application consists of a two-page description of 
the proposed paper as well as a current cv. Please email or send your 
application to Dr. Barbara Truesdell, Weatherly Hall North, room 122, 
Bloomington, IN 47405, Telephone 812/855-2856, email 
[log in to unmask] Papers will be selected by an interdisciplinary 
committee.

Center, Dror Wahrman, Dept. of History, Indiana University,
