This is a call for papers for an edited collection of articles to be published by AMS Press:
This edited collection seeks to refocus our own vision of the commercial gaze in the eighteenth century. We invite papers that investigate how the lens of mercantilism helped various classes of people to understand the colonial world, national identity, and selfhood; and how perceptions of the commercial gaze and consumption evolved over the course of the century, particularly in relation to growing social concerns. All disciplines are welcomed to submit proposals, although we are particularly interested in papers from the fields of history and art history.
Please send electronic proposals (approx. 250 words) by May 15, 2006 to:
6th Floor, Dealy Hall
441 E. Fordham Rd.
