BOOK TITLE: New Studies in Eighteenth-Century Literature and Culture.

New Studies in Eighteenth-Century Literature and Culture is a collection of essays featuring the work of established and emerging scholars in the areas of eighteenth-century commerce, race, law, genre and gender. The century that witnessed capitalistic growth, slavery and, in some countries, the abolition movement, the emerging of newly distinctive literary genres and fashionably defined gender roles is no longer understood as simply the time of Augustan restrictions and budding Romantic sensibilities.

Professor Penny Gay / University of Sydney

Call for Papers
Education is a 'drawing out' – of knowledge, experience, of the learner and of the teacher. Situations, narratives and interrogations of teaching and learning occur frequently in Shakespeare's plays and many other texts of the period. The problems of teaching 400-year-old texts, under different societal, technological, cultural, and even geographical constraints, remain challenging today.

More than 50 years later, contemporary scholars, including Bill Mullen, Gary Okihiro, and Vijay Prashad, are responding to the 1955 Bandung Conference's powerful vision of an Afro-Asian world of color poised to take back the reins of history and challenge the global hegemony of the world's superpowers. These scholars' work emerges not from theoretical models of hybridity within postcolonial and cultural studies but — like the Bandung Conference itself — from anti-imperialist and transnational political agendas. Significantly, as Colleen Lye suggests, this work comprises a third stage of ethnic studies, mediating between limited, nation-bound multiracial analysis and the perceived lack of historical specificity in diaspora models.

"I have given no small attention to that not unvexed subject, the skin of the whale. I have had controversies about it with experienced whalemen afloat, and learned naturalists ashore. My original opinion remains unchanged; but it is only an opinion. The question is, what and where is the skin of the whale?"

--Herman Melville, Moby-Dick
