CFP: Seduction and Sentiment in the Atlantic World, 1600-1800
Ed. Toni Bowers (University of Pennsylvania) and Tita Chico (University of Maryland)
What relations pertained between seduction plots, sentimental narratives, and the economic, social, credal, and political imperatives of the Atlantic world in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries? What could "seduction" and "sentiment" mean in relation to one another? When, how, and why were the two positioned in relation to each other, as versions of one another, or as antonyms?
This collection of essays considers how new exigencies that emerged in the seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Atlantic world reconfigured old and shaped possible new relations between seduction and sentiment.
Essays to be completed by December 1, 2009.
