This interdisciplinary conference seeks to explore the complex webs of interconnection between the long eighteenth century and the 'long' twentieth century, from 1900 to the present. As the field of eighteenth century studies continues to boom within the academy, the eighteenth century – invoked around names like Rousseau, Voltaire, and Adam Smith – is becoming an increasingly frequent interlocutor in contemporary debates in the international media about society, democracy, human rights, and the economy.
