Call for paper proposals for 2005 ASA (Washington, D.C., Nov.3-6, 2005)
Seeking papers for panel on "Labor and Emotion in the Nineteenth-Century Home." This panel addresses forms of production and related products that were coded as emotional in nineteenth-century domestic life. We encourage papers that examine activities that required or taught emotional management, promised or assumed psychic wages, de-commodified products by investing them with emotional value, or otherwise figured economically functional labor as emotional. How did these forms of work, and in turn their products, reveal or conceal the relationships between physical and intellectual exertion, skill, emotion, economics, and identity construction? Papers that address this topic from a material culture perspective are especially encouraged, but we do welcome all inquiries.
Please submit 500-word abstracts and brief CVs to both Robin Veder, Penn State Harrisburg, at the e-mail address below and Brandy Parris, University of Washington, at firstname.lastname@example.org by January 1, 2005.
