CFP Deadline: Health, Care, and Disability in the Early Modern Francophone World

March 20, 2023

This non-guaranteed panel [at MLA 2024] invites contributions that explore notions of health, care, and disability in early modern Francophone spaces in various contexts and perspectives. Potential topics might include (but are certainly not limited to): the relation between care, charity, and religion in the early modern; literature featuring characters with disabilities; texts that challenge gendered notions of care; the various ways bodily ability are articulated in different spaces within the early Francophone world. We especially welcome papers engaging with these topics from global and/or intersectional perspectives, as well as those considering diachronic and transtemporal approaches. Please submit abstracts to trutler@psu.edu and alani_hicks-bartlett@brown.edu by Monday, March 20th, 2023.
