In recognition of this year’s conference theme, we welcome papers that explore the interface of scientific and aesthetic discourse in American literary texts produced after 1870. Possible topics include but are certainly not limited to: literary models derived from scientific models or vice-versa, the aestheticization of science and/or technology, the scientist as literary character, novelistic/poetic/dramatic depictions of scientific discovery, the cultural hegemony of the sciences, author as scientist and scientist as author.

Please submit a 250 word abstract and a brief academic bio by April 5th to panel chair, Dr. Mark Schiebe, at mschiebe@qcc.cuny.edu
