>Few would deny the combined and discrete impacts of feminist thought and of
>queer studies on scholarly readings of eighteenth-century culture.  These
>intersecting approaches have generated debates and prompted research that have
>broadly shaped contemporary study of eighteenth-century literature, arts, and
>history.  Equally, however, scholarly focus on sexuality and gender has
>coincided with an increasing tendency towards specialization (perhaps even
>fragmentation) into disparate "studies": women's studies, gender studies, LGBT
>or queer studies, amongst others.  In this roundtable, a range of panelists
>working on different areas of eighteenth-century culture will present position
>papers on their own experiences of the splintering of studies connected to
>gender and sexuality.  This panel will consider the interactions between
>academic disciplines relating to eighteenth-century culture and these various
>"studies," asking how they talk back to one another, how they are prioritized
>over one another in curricula and publishing, to what extent they are engaged
>in different projects from one another, and to what degree they risk
>ghettoization.
>
>Please send brief abstracts for 10-15 minute papers to 
>[log in to unmask], in the
>form of an MS Word attachment and using the subject line "ASECS roundtable".
