Paper proposals are sought for a panel entitled Monsters, Fantastical Creatures, Subaltern Life-Forms in the Sciences and Arts at the ASECA Annual Meeting and the Eighteenth-Century Scottish Studies Society to take place in Pittsburgh, PA from March 31 to April 03, 2016.
The Enlightenment does not drive out the monsters. The Enlightenment is fascinated with the monstrous, the incredible, the deviant. At the same time, norms and boundaries of the animate world and of anthropology are negotiated within these deviations: What is human, what is animal? What is culture, what is nature? What is healthy, what is sick? What is male, what is female? What is beautiful and what is ugly? By describing, examining, dissecting, categorizing and classifying the deviation, it becomes the focus of the sciences as well as the fine arts. Yet its defining factor is its inconceivability.
The planned panel examines the dialogue between a "scientific facticity of deviance" and the portrayal in the arts. How is the idea of deviant or mastered nature reflected in artistic representations, what other images of the monstrous, such as disgust or fascination with the scary and unexplainable, are produced in the arts and contrasted with the "enlightened monsters"?
Contributions from perspectives of art history, musicology, literature and history of science are welcome. Please send 300-word proposals for 15-minutes papers (via email: email@example.com AND firstname.lastname@example.org ) no later than 15 September 2015. Please include your telephone and fax numbers and e-mail address. You should also let the session chair know of any audio-visual needs and special scheduling requests. We actively encourage presentations by younger and untenured scholars.

Membership must be current by November 1 in order to be printed in the program and to receive pre-registration materials.
