Panel Proposal for International Milton Congress March 11-13, 2004 Duquesne University, Pittsburgh PA 15282 MILTON AND THE MENTAL FACULTIES This panel seeks to theorize and historicize the mental faculties in Milton's poetry and prose. How are the mental faculties represented in Milton? What work do they perform in his poetics, politics, theodicy, and gender theory? Papers that situate Milton's mental economy in relation to ancient, medieval, and early modern mind-body theory (Platonic, Aristotelian, Galenic, Augustinian, Cartesian, etc.), put early modern mind-body thought into dialogue with contemporary theories (neuroscientific, psychoanalytic, phenomenological, etc.), or combine either of the above approaches with traditional literary-historical modes of analysis are particularly welcome. Please send 1-page single-spaced abstracts of 500 words or less as attachments (preferably Microsoft Word) and pasted into the body of an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 5, 2003. Or, send by mail to: Zackariah Long University of Virginia Bryan Hall 219 P.O. Box 400121 Charlottesville, VA 22904 Please note: Final papers should not exceed a reading time of 20 minutes.
