The Strange Eighteenth Century:
If the physical world undoubtedly became less "strange" in the eighteenth century, then the people inhabiting it were becoming, perversely, stranger than ever. The vast movement toward large urban communities surely produced a particularly modern phenomenon - the sensation of being surrounded at all times by complete and utter strangers. Proposals are invited for papers examining the ramifications of such estrangements, or for similar considerations of the concept of "the strange" within eighteenth-century culture.
Proposal Deadline: 15 September 2005
Please send abstracts of 250 words via e-mail to
