>A series of studies since the late 1990s (most 
>notably, Tropicopolitans, and the collections of 
>essays The Global Eighteenth Century and A New 
>Imperial History) are ñ as their titles suggest 
>ñ  indicative of a new phase in the analysis of 
>colonialism and imperialism in the long 
>eighteenth century,  arguably catalysing a new 
>generation of scholars engaged in postcolonial 
>analyses of this period and its texts. In 
>addition, as a recent ASECS panel suggested, 
>there are those who argue that a properly 
>ëpostcolonialí analysis of this century should 
>consider the reverberation between the 
>eighteenth century and postcolonial writersí 
>engagement with colonial history and texts. This 
>roundtable panel is calling for papers that 
>reflect upon the impact of this new phase of 
>analysis for research and, as importantly, for 
>teaching postcolonial approaches to this period. 
>In short, can we imagine a ëpostcolonial 
>eighteenth centuryí, and what might it look like?
