Special Session: "Literature and Rights in the Age of Enlightenment"
This panel seeks to investigate the intertwined histories of literature
and rights in the long eighteenth century. How does imaginative writing
in this period contribute to the development of the humanitarian
sensibility and the emergence of human rights? Conversely, how do
changing conceptions of rights shape novels, poems, plays, and essays?
Papers on literary, philosophical, and legal formulations of natural and
positive rights, and on questions concerning freedom, equality, justice,
toleration, torture, cruelty, and pain are all welcome.
Send one-page abstracts to Melissa Ganz ([log in to unmask]) by
March 12. Inquiries welcome.
