"Reaching the Limit of Literary Prose: Mathematical Economics in the Late Nineteenth Century"
"Prose" has long served as an amorphous umbrella term, one whose very lack of specificity allows it to embrace a large portion of the linguistic cultural record. Lying somewhere between art and science, between history and literature, prose remains undertheorized as a category even as its study continues to be vital to the practice of a
wide range of scholarly disciplines. This panel discussion, along with the informal conversation that will follow it, aims to revitalize questions of how to approach prose documents by examining the formal and historical issues that shaped the composition and reception of nineteenth-century prose from several different disciplinary perspectives.
