CFP: Everyday Empires: State, Security, Form. (4/15/06; MSA 10/19/06 =20=

=96 10/22/06)

where state power, imperial practice, and domestic life coincide.

Panel title: "Colonialism and Knowledge-Making in Eighteenth-Century Europe"

Eighteenth-century colonial expansion gave birth to, enabled, and systematized several European bodies of knowledge: encounters with non-European populations gave rise to large-scale classifications of race in European scientific discourse; a vast and growing body of travel writing produced ethnographies and encyclopedic treatises on peoples and cultures of the globe; scientific exploration abroad aided the development of European natural science.
