Interdisciplinary Nineteenth-Century Studies Conference: Family / Resemblance
Thu, March 25, 2010
Hosted on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin, the 2010 INCS Conference will take place 25-27 March at the new AT&T Conference Center. Focusing on the theme of “Family/Resemblance,” sessions will consider how both family and resemblance were conceived/constructed in the 19th century from multiple interdisciplinary perspectives, including and/or integrating Literature (British, French, German, Spanish, American), History, Art History, Gender Studies, Law, Science, Sociology, Anthropology, Philosophy, Music, Economics, and Religion.
In keeping with the INCS Conference format, all papers will be posted on a password-protected website in early March so participants can read them beforehand. (Instructions and link for posting 8-10 page papers coming soon.) Presenters will give brief, 5-7-minute overviews of their papers (in whatever form they choose—including PowerPoint, reading 2-3 pages, offering a telling example, etc.) and the rest of the session will be devoted to group discussion engaging both the audience and the panelists. We have found that lively, thought-provoking, even exhilarating conversation ensues not only in the sessions, but throughout the conference.
