Call for Papers: ‘Jargon of Men and Things’: Production and Consumption in the Long Eighteenth Century

Saturday, 18 April 2015, Faculty of English, University of Cambridge

The Eighteenth-Century and Romantic Studies Graduate Conference is an annual event at the Faculty of English, University of Cambridge, organised and hosted by students enrolled on the Faculty’s MPhil programme. The conference welcomes papers from graduate students of around 20 minutes in length, which will be organized into panels chaired by members of the Faculty at Cambridge.

This year’s graduate conference is drawing its theme from current interdisciplinary interest in production and consumption of all kinds – bodily, intellectual and material – as it relates to issues such as power, desire, reception, regulation and identity in flux. We are seeking papers from graduate students that will interrogate this common collocation, and its mediation through eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century literature and textual ephemera, as well as material and visual culture.

Please email proposals of no more than 400 words to [email protected]. The deadline for the submission of proposals is March 15, 2015.

For further information, please contact the conference committee by email or visit the conference website at
