The third annual Bloomington 18th-Century Studies Workshop requests
paper proposals on the question of the global in the 18th century. What does it mean to locate the invention of the global in the eighteenth 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 eighteenth century, encouraging comparisons across space and time, and debates across disciplines.
The workshop will be an interdisciplinary event May 19-22, 2004 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 should include a CV and a two-page proposal. Applications may be hard copy or electronic. Please direct your application to the address below by January 5, 2004.
