I was just looking at the CFP for the Group for Early Modern Cultural Studies annual conference, the theme for which is "Appetite, Desire, and Gargantuan Pleasures." In case the possibilities of that topic aren't sufficiently clear, the webpage gives a variety of prompts. The one that caught my eye was "gin culture."
Gin culture. Well now!
Can't say as I have a paper on that topic, but as one who regularly defends the honor of gin vis-à-vis vodka--and who still remembers the awful morning she woke up and found her bottle of Bombay Sapphire missing--I sure hope this panel comes together.
(Will there be a tasting? Should I bring the vermouth?)
