"Geographies of the Eighteenth Century: The Question of the Global"
Our topic for 2004 addresses questions such as: What does it mean to locate the invention of the global in the 18th century? What does this location of the global legitimate or make visible? What does it neglect or occlude? We would like to interrogate the meaning and distinctiveness of "the global" in the 18th century, encouraging comparisons across space and time, and debates across disciplines.
The workshop will be an interdisciplinary event with 20-30 scholars presenting, discussing, and debating their work over several days in a congenial setting. It follows the success of two previous workshops, and the inauguration of a center for 18th-century studies at Indiana University. Accommodation and most meals and travel expenses for participants will be covered by the workshop.
Applications are considered from scholars at all stages of their careers and from all disciplines. Applications are due by January 5, 2004, and should include a CV and a two-page proposal. Please direct your application to:
