colonialism and exoticism; the representation of “other” people, places,
flora, fauna, food, and assorted things; comparison to non-English
authors in the treatment of similar topics; translations by Behn or of
her work; her reception abroad; teaching Behn in different countries; her
use of themes or conventions from non-English literary traditions; and
other topics unanticipated here. A wide variety of disciplines and
