ABSTRACT DEADLINE: June 30, 2009


Call for submissions for a volume on the history of trees in the long eighteenth century, eds. Laura Auricchio, Elizabeth Heckendorn Cook, and Giulia Pacini


We wish to assemble an interdisciplinary collection of essays that investigate the material culture of trees and forests in the global long eighteenth century. Essays might discuss the history of trees and their representations as objects of science and commerce, or how they intersect with political movements and various kinds of affect. Papers might analyze wood as a living or a dead material, as a design element in landscape gardens, or a useful resource for construction, crafting, fuel (domestic and industrial). Other issues of interest could include: commemorative tree-planting; tree tourism; debates about pruning and grafting; estate/plantation management; forest histories; deforestation; government policies; bio-prospecting; the acclimatization of exotic plants; the global market in timber; etc. While there is a rich register of Enlightenment arboreal metaphors (trees of knowledge, "heart of oak"), we are particularly interested in papers that take trees and representations of trees literally. Accepted articles should ultimately be approximately 5000-6000 words, and will be due in spring 2010.


Please send abstracts of 500-750 words and a c.v. before June 30th to Laura Auricchio, Elizabeth Heckendorn Cook, and Giulia Pacini at: auricchL@newschool.edu, ecook@english.ucsb.edu, gxpaci@wm.edu.
