Call for Papers
2015 American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies Annual Meeting

Sponsored by the Goethe Society of North America
Creation and Procreation in Eighteenth Century German Literature
Los Angeles, March 19-22, 2015



The concepts of creation and procreation formulated in the eighteenth
century by naturalists and philosophers, reflect both the sexual and the
aesthetic realm. While women’s reproductive abilities were used to limit
their access to the public sphere, male contributions to the literary scene
were described as “procreative.” Both male and female-authored
representations of the body, maternity, paternity and the artistic process
are influenced by theories of nature and generation and have the potential
to both challenge and uphold ideas of gender and sexuality. Papers
exploring any aspect of creation and procreation are welcome. Please send
250-word proposals to Lauren Nossett at [log in to unmask] by May 1st.
