>  From feathered hats to fur coats, from lap dogs to caged or stuffed wild
>creatures, animals mesmerized their human counterparts in the nineteenth
>century.  The panel "Sexy Beast" will investigate how and why human desires
>were projected onto or ascribed to animals and even animal objects such as
>furs and feathers.  In the interdisciplinary spirit of the conference, I
>hope to include papers on the panel that reflect the subjects of a variety
>of fields and locations, including literature, painting, sculpture,
>theatre, fashion, cartoons, anthropology, zoology, or other arenas.
>
>Please note--the INCS conference format requires that participants submit
>completed papers in late January to be placed on a protected web site. At
>the conference itself, panelists present a brief overview of the paper, and
>sessions are devoted to (usually lively) discussion.
>
>Please send one-page abstracts to [log in to unmask] by Friday,
>September 26 both pasted into your email and as an attachment.
