>The Universe of Porcelain in the Long Eighteenth Century
>
>This panel seeks to promote scholarship on the relationship between
>porcelain and eighteenth century conceptions, fantasies, or
>constructions of the natural world. Papers investigating the cultural
>significance of various mythologies surrounding porcelainís earthly or
>unearthly origins are welcome.  Appropriate areas of study might also
>include porcelain objects that bear naturalistic or fantastic
>relationships to natural forms such as shells, grottoes, flowers, exotic
>or everyday fauna, or even the human body in its natural or acculturated
>state.  We are also interested in papers that investigate relationships
>between decorated rooms, processes, projects, or other cultural
>manifestations that shed light on eighteenth century notions of nature
>or the natural.
