10/6-7/2016 - 19th Century Workshop: Population

The nineteenth century turned the very old concept of “population” into a newly central actor in the realms of politics, arts, and science. This workshop aims to answer several pertinent questions: How did the concept vary in different national and professional contexts, and how did it interact with other rubrics of organization like race, nation, class, and gender? How did population cut across or reinforce the ideology and practice of slavery and empire? How adequately do our current theories account for nineteenth-century realities? And what legacies of nineteenth-century theories of populations are still with us today?

Co-Sponsored by the Center for Cultural Analysis, the Americanist Seminar, the Rutgers British Studies Center, the Department of English, the Department of History, and the Program in Comparative Literature.
