Discipline and Excess seeks to consider boundaries and their transgression until 1750. The theme invites diverse interpretations of “discipline”—moral, religious, cultural, aesthetic, generic, geographic—in papers which explore the realms of penance and perfection, challenge the orderliness implicit in systems of knowledge, or examine the nature of punishment and retribution.
The conference is aimed at early career scholars and graduate students from a range of academic fields. Discipline and Excess is sponsored by the M.Phil programs in Medieval, Renaissance, and 18th-Century Literature at the Faculty of English, University of Cambridge. Our external respondent will be Dr. Helen Barr, Associate Professor at the University of Oxford.
