>Subject: CFP: Constructing Deviant Identities in 
>18th-Century Media (9/20/05; ASECS, 
>3/30/06-4/2/06)
>
>This is a call for proposals for a seminar on "Constructing Deviant
>Identities in Eighteenth-Century Media" at next year's ASECS at
>Montreal.
>In the seminar, we shall discuss how subjects who deviated from what
>was considered the 'legitimate' norm (e.g. criminals, whores,
>homosexuals, lunatics) were represented in different
>eighteenth-century media contexts, such as pamphlets, caricatures,
>prints, novels, or painting.
>Papers should address how these representations worked rather than who or w=
>hat
>was represented. I.e., in how far are exclusive social practices
>realized and reflected in forms of representation that were typical of part=
>icular media?
>How can, for instance, focalization, framing, constellations and configurat=
>ions, or narrative
>techniques contribute to the constructions of identities outside
>'normal' and 'legitimate' frames?
>
>Please send your proposals of ca. 250 words by e-mail attachment (in Word
>or RTF-Format, no MAC or WordPerfect, please!) to
>[log in to unmask] . The deadline for proposals is 20
>September 2005.
>
>P.S.: Please note that participants who read a paper at ASECS 2006 are
>expected to be ASECS members by 1 December 2005.
