"The Colonial Gaze: Illustrated Travel Accounts of the Atlantic World and
Seventeenth-and eighteenth-century colonists, missionaries, explorers,
and merchants sailed to the Caribbean and Africa, producing records of
their travels illustrated with scenes of plantation life, agricultural
practices, local flora and fauna, harbors and forts, and the buying and
selling of slaves. This panel invites papers from a range of disciplines
that address any aspect of this imageryıs role shaping European notions
of conquest, colonialism, and slavery. In keeping with the theme of the
conference, ³Science and the Arts in the Long Eighteenth-Century,²
papers exploring the imagesı framing of the natural sciences are
especially welcome, as are papers exploring text-image relationships and

"Teaching the Eighteenth-Century"
This panel welcomes proposals from all disciplines; we rarely hear from
people in history, foreign languages, and the fine arts, so please step up!
The format of the panel asks you to confine your presentation to 15
minutes, to make sure there is lots of time for questions and comments from
the audience. Proposals that concentrate on particular strategies or
assignments are particularly welcome.
