For this roundtable, we seek presentations on any aspect of teaching the eighteenth-century
within a global context. Presentations might focus on strategies for teaching transcultural and
transnational encounters; travel, trade, or colonialism; eighteenth-century world literatures; or
any text or set of texts—written, oral, visual, aural, or material—that “globalize” students’
engagement with the eighteenth century. We welcome presentations that offer strategies for
teaching subject matter that exposes, interrogates, unsettles, decenters, or displaces a Eurocentric
worldview.
