Call for papers
This conference seeks to explore further the phenomenon of depression 'before depression', and the problems that such an apparently retrospective construction might entail. The conference committee invites proposals on any aspects of the culture and representation of depression (however construed) in the period 1660-1800. Papers are acceptable in English or French.
Papers selected from the conference will be revised and published in The European Spectator/ Le spectateur européen.
Proposals of 200-300 words are invited, to be sent no later than Jan 31st, 2008, to Dr Clark Lawlor, Division of English, School of Arts and Social Sciences, University of Northumbria at Newcastle Upon Tyne,
Newcastle, NE1 8ST, United Kingdom
Proposals for papers in French should be sent to Valérie Maffre at the Université Paul-Valéry, Montpellier:
