Paper abstracts are invited for an upcoming multi-disciplinary conference entitled, Politeness and Prurience: Situating Transgressive Sexualities in the Long Eighteenth Century. The conference will attempt to reconcile the dominant discourse of politeness with the subject of illicit sexuality, which have been hitherto pursued as two separate fields of enquiry within cultural histories of the eighteenth century.
This two-day event will be hosted by the History of Art Department at the University of Edinburgh on the 2-3 September 2013. Please see the conference website www.politenessandprurience.com for the full call for papers, details of our distinguished speakers and associated public lecture. We invite abstracts of no more than 500 words relating to the themes as outlined in the call for papers to be sent to Dr. Viccy Coltman, Freya Gowrley and Jordan Mearns at firstname.lastname@example.org by 10 September 2012.
