We are seeking essays for the collection *Neurology and Modernity*. While
psychoanalysis has been one of the most dominating discourses within accounts
of modernity, offering explanations of the modern as a fundamentally nervous
state, what has been less examined is the influence of its parent discipline,
neurology. Continuing its own account of nerve force and brain function
alongside the psychoanalytic notion of the unconscious, neurology was largely
simultaneous with what we refer to as modernity.

For the majority of William Blake's life, Britain was a nation at war.
Countries, individuals, and ideologies clashed in the ferment of the
American, French, and Industrial Revolutions. Britain experienced
unprecedented levels of mobilisation, chronic food shortages, mass
demonstrations, and the repression of civil liberties.

CFP deadline: Apr. 15, 2006

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.
