Lauren Berlant asks, "What if people were to take the opportunity to reimagine state/society relations such that the flourishing of reciprocity were differently constructed and assessed, and in which consumer forms of collectivity were not the main way people secure or fantasize securing everyday happiness?" This roundtable is devoted to positing answers to this question through an examination of the politics and pathways of eighteenth-century civil society, its commensurate models of 'the good life,' and/or its discontents. Multiple disciplinary viewpoints are welcomed.
