CFP: Animal Modernities

Daniel Harkett's picture

Call for participation in a one-day conference at Dartmouth College on October 13, 2022 and a follow-up workshop to prepare the papers for publication in an edited volume at Colby College, April 14-15, 2023. Contributions should interrogate and theorize the historical coexistence of animal life alongside humans in the processes and practices of visual production circa 1750-1900 and challenge the traditional subservience of non-human animals in accounts of the emergence of modern visuality. Papers that address the multivalent presence of animals in material culture in any geographic or transnational context are especially welcome.

Please send a brief proposal (circa 250 words) to Katie Hornstein (Dartmouth College) and Daniel Harkett (Colby College) at The deadline for proposals is May 31, 2022.
