>How Modern Was the Late Early Modern?
>MWASECS October 7-10, 2004, St. Louis
>ìWe have never been modern!î With this slogan Bruno Latour opened some
>years ago his attack on what remains one of the most powerful paradigms
>for explaining large-scale historical change: the process of
>modernization. In eighteenth-century literary and cultural studies,
>modernization continues to exert enormous attraction, shaping arguments
>and propelling narratives. This panel hopes to reopen the question of
>what it meant to be modern in the eighteenth century. It invites papers
>from all disciplines addressing theoretical or practical, literary or
>historical aspects of how modern the late early modern was.
