Teaching the Eighteenth Century (Vancouver, 14-17 October 2015)

Great teaching is what invites the next generation of great scholars into our profession. Perhaps because of bad high school experiences, many students expect the 18th-century to be a period of dry treatises, hard-to-understand poems, and repetitive plays full of in-jokes. We know differently, but what is the best way to teach the brilliance, wit, complexity, and conflict of our period?

Building upon the models of MLA and ASECS, CSECS 2015 will offer for the second year a cluster of panels on teaching the long eighteenth century.

Proposals are invited for formal papers and two roundtable discussions
(NB: CSECS allows participation in roundtable discussions in addition to the presentation of another conference paper)

The first volume of _Capital_ was the only one completed by Marx and published during his lifetime. Volumes II and III were published by Engels, some ten years after Marx's death, from unfinished manuscripts; _Theories of Surplus Value_ was published after Engels's death. Volume I has, with good reason, assumed renewed currency in the years since the global financial crisis of 2007-8, but the "later" volumes — written before Volume I was prepared for publication — have remained largely the province of specialists.

Italo Calvino once asked, "who are we, who is each one of us, if not a combinatoria of experiences, information, books we have read, things imagined?" And while the question maintains its relevance, isn't it about time we turn our attention away from the individual, the "we," and ask this question of the texts produced and the environments in which they are produced?

- Nous approchons ici, dis-je au maître, d'une grosse objection que j'avais à vous faire…. L'obscurité !
- C'est, en effet, également dangereux, me répond-il, soit que l'obscurité vienne de l'insuffisance du lecteur, ou celle du poète… mais c'est tricher que l'éluder ce travail.

ASA 2015 (Oct 8-11): "Blackness and the Miseries of Law"

In the wake of the deaths of Michael Brown, Aiyana Jones, Eric Garner, John Crawford, Tamir Price, Ezell Ford, and too many others, and the ostensible inability of the law or the legal system to provide something resembling "justice" in the aftermath of these deaths by police violence, it is impossible not to consider the implications of a legally imposed condition of misery on Black bodies in the U.S. This panel takes up the meeting's call to consider a "long and changing past" of misery by asking how the historical imbrication of U.S. law and race - most obvious and yet still most crucial to analyze in slavery - further structures conditions of misery for Black Americans.
