'Bodies that Matter': Corporeality and Materiality in the Age of Goethe
Vancouver, January 8-11, 2015

This panel reconsiders the human form as a living, breathing organism in literature and culture around 1800 with particular emphasis on gendered and sexed bodies. Recent scholarship, in particular work by material feminists, has redirected attention to the importance of the material world in modern conceptions of gender and sexuality. We seek papers that apply theories of materiality and discourse to the Goethezeit in order to generate new understandings of the complex and reciprocal relationship between nature and society. Papers might examine reproductive and birth practices; motherhood; infanticide; the institution of marriage; prostitution; sexual practices; sexuality; theatrical performances, including public and private stagings of the body, theories of declamation, set and costume design, etc; performative art, including genres such as the tableau vivant; male and female authors' attempts to write the body; regulatory practices of the body such as exercise, hygiene, and diet; corporal discipline and punishment; unruly and rebellious bodies; bodies in religion and religious practices; death, decay and rituals of mourning; body modification, beauty, and fashion; mechanization of the body through automation or prosthetics; tortured, traumatized, disfigured or wounded bodies; military institutions and cultures of warfare; environmental concerns; philosophical reassessments of Cartesian dualism; or scientific fields of inquiry such as anatomical studies.
