Call for abstracts for AHA panel proposal (in Boston, January 2001).
We are seeking papers addressing nineteenth-century British and American discoveries, discussions, and representations of ruins and ruin sites throughout the world. We are particularly interested in overlaps with issues of imperialism, colonialism, social power, spatial dynamics, and aesthetics. How are ruins defined? How are they perceived? How do the aesthetic and emotional qualities of ruins emerge from and interact with their material and historical contexts? What do these sites provide that seems to fill a need within the increasingly industrial and imperial nations of the United States and England? E-mail inquiries are welcome. Please send two-page abstracts and one-page vitae by January 7, 2000 to Karen S. Kimball at the address below.
