  • Editors’ Introduction
    • Abstract: The implicit theme of this volume is the relation of the present to the past. Conscious that our access to the eighteenth century is mediated by visual, verbal, and material representations, contributors re-examine those representations for the ways in which contemporaries used the media at their disposal to disseminate new labor practices or construct new public selves, as well as to co-opt or adapt diverse pasts to make sense of their present and possible future. Many contributors also discuss how we ourselves represent and might re-conceive links between our present and eighteenth-century texts, intentions, images, or ideas. Contributors work with letters, diaries, manuals, engravings, pottery, portraits ... Read More

  • From Enlightenment to the Anthropocene: Vico Behind or Ahead of His
           Time'
    • Abstract: On all Saint’s Day—November 1, 1755—an earthquake (estimated at 8.5 to 9.0 on the Richter scale) hit the Portuguese capital of Lisbon. Estimates of mortality at the time varied widely from 10,000 to 100,000. Even in more recent projections, the death toll ranged from 15,000–40,000. A giant tsunami destroyed all the boats in the Lisbon harbor 40 minutes after the quake. With raging fires and aftershocks, 85% of the buildings in the city were destroyed. The quake wrecked a vibrant capital city with major ambitions for global empire (fig. 1).The effects of the quake were not limited to Lisbon. Seismic activity was felt for weeks throughout Europe and beyond, making it an extended physically experienced event. High ... Read More

  • Panel Introduction: Labor, Industry, and Technology
    • Abstract: Over the course of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, small-scale production in the hands of cottage industries and individual manufacturer-entrepreneurs transitioned to the greater efficiencies that drove the proto-factories of the nascent Industrial Revolution. An explosion of new technologies—the flying shuttle, the spinning jenny, the steam engine, the power loom, the cotton gin, and the battery, among others—fueled changes in the operations of textile mills and in the mining of coal, iron, and other metals. Agricultural production, too, experienced the impact of these innovations. As work processes were automated, the labor force experienced a general shift away from skilled craftsmen toward ...

  • Spanish Orphans, British Prisoners, and the American Revolution: Warfare,
           Social Welfare, and Technical Training
    • Abstract: These lines about an orphan open the hottest show on Broadway this year. While others would not share Alexander Hamilton’s fate as a revolutionary hero portrayed centuries later on U.S. currency and Broadway stages, orphans in European home countries and overseas territories were commonly embroiled in the economic and political developments that brought metropoles and colonies into alliances and conflicts with one another during the late eighteenth century. The American Revolution was one such conflict. This article discusses male orphans from Spain, which is less famous than France as an ally of the rebels in Britain’s North American colonies, and an arena of the war relatively little known to non-specialists: ...

  • The Cyclops in the Vale: Mythological and Fantastic Representations of
           Industry
    • Abstract: In August of 1776, the Pennsylvanian Quaker Jabez Maude Fisher toured the Western Midlands and likened a night scene at Coalbrookdale1 to an “immense Theatre,” “present[ing] all the horrors that Pandemonium could shew.”2 He compared the active furnaces and burning “Mountains of Ore” to “Etnas and Vesuvius’s [sic],” declaring the “Prospect [to be] awful and magnificent.”3 Fisher’s views had been constructed for him. The British Grand Tour at the end of the eighteenth century included travel to mills, furnaces, manufactories, and mines, where visitors were encouraged to enjoy the spectacle of industry. Between 1782 and 1792, the Quaker industrialist Richard Reynolds created Sabbath or Workmen’s Walks in the woods ... Read More

  • The Mechanical Plantation: Picturing Sugar Production in the
           Encyclopédie
    • Abstract: Among the eighty-three illustrations of agriculture in Diderot’s and d’Alembert’s Encyclopédie are several depicting colonial plantations.1 Grouped together in a section titled “Economie et Agriculture Rustique,” scenes of tobacco, indigo, cotton, and sugar production appear among images of domestic agriculture, such as plowing, caring for grapevines, and making hemp. The colonial agriculture takes place on island plantations, except for tobacco, where the location is not indicated. A reader viewing this section sees a succession of illustrations of familiar rural activities occurring in a temperate region, interrupted by a few scenes taking place in the tropics, as if the latter were simply topographical ...

  • Scale and Skill in British Print Culture: Reading the Technologies,
           1680–1820
    • Abstract: In the long eighteenth century, a technology was something to read—a printed treatise or manual of skills that encompassed the whole range of what were then called the mechanical arts. The OED marks this meaning of the word as obsolete after 1860 (sense 1), but it flourished far and wide before then. Some of these works hewed closely to the ground of traditional artisan labor, like Joseph Moxon’s Mechanick Exercises (1683). Others deployed sophisticated idioms of mathematical measuring, like Benjamin Martin’s Logarithmologia (1740), and later, more spacious versions like Thomas Martin’s The Circle of the Mechanical Arts (1813) began to register the impact of steam technology on older and newer kinds of British ...

I would précis our mission as follows: to ask present-centered questions of the past without doing violence to our historical sources. To consider current global challenges through an Enlightenment lens is never less than ... Read More

  • Panel Introduction: Inside the Artist’s Studio
    • Abstract: Over the past decade, scholars have emphasized the cultural and material history of the artist’s studio as a distinctive creative space and a locus of artistic identity.1 Although the term studio in the modern sense entered the lexicon in the nineteenth century, its origins as a concept and as a subject for art can be traced to the Renaissance. The invention of the studio was linked to broader historical and cultural shifts, in particular the recognition of art as a creative rather than a mechanical practice and a growing preoccupation with the intellect and imagination of the artist. The particular fascination of the studio lies in its double existence as both an actual and an imagined space that was emblematic of ... Read More

  • A Celebrity Artist’s Studio: Angelica Kauffman in Rome
    • Abstract: In June 1766, Angelica Kauffman left Italy to pursue her painting career in England, where she became a Founding Member of the Royal Academy of Arts and a popular painter of portraits and history paintings. In London, she followed the English practice of maintaining a room for the display of finished paintings that was separate from her working studio, for while the public exhibitions in London at the Society of Artists and Royal Academy attracted large crowds, members of fashionable society also enjoyed visiting individual artists to view their recent work and to engage in informal social interactions and business transactions.1Angelica Kauffman and her new husband, Venetian painter Antonio Zucchi, returned to ...

  • The Myth of the Artist in George Morland’s Studio
    • Abstract: The Artist in His Studio with His Man Gibbs is the last image that George Morland, the celebrated eighteenth-century painter of rural scenes, painted of himself (fig. 1, circa 1802). The canvas stands out amongst other British self-portraits of the period for the unusual importance it gives to the setting of the painter’s activity. A disheveled Morland is here surrounded by various objects alluding to both his art and his dissolute lifestyle. The visit to the artist’s painting room, a cliché of much Old Master self-portraiture,1 seems here to be reversed into a parody: Morland’s studio appears as the cold and squalid attic which (as one of his obituaries would put it) “served him for every purpose.”2 The ...

    • Abstract: Mme Récamier was not the most beautiful woman in Paris, but the most in fashion. Her bizarre coiffure, her rare, almost mysterious appearances at the theater and in public places had given her…a celebrity that no other woman of her time possessed. All the English newspapers announced her arrival, and people came running from the three kingdoms to see the fashionable beauty.…Her portrait was sold everywhere.Madame Récamier’s renown is emblematic of the transformation of celebrity culture and its “feminine face” in the late eighteenth century.2 It also raises broader questions about how the celebrity apparatus operated and about the central role that images and the media played in producing and transmitting fame. How ... Read More

  • Mediating Cultural Memory: Ireland and the “Glorious
           Revolution”
    • Abstract: On 5 November 1688, William of Orange landed his force of 40,000 men at Torbay in Devonshire. Over the following month, he marched his troops to London, assuming control of the government as James II fled to France. This “Dutch invasion,” in Jonathan Israel’s phrase, would in time be reconceived as the “Glorious Revolution.”1 It would become, in other words, a powerful lieu de mémoire, a term coined by French historian Pierre Nora to designate “any significant entity, whether material or non-material in nature, which by dint of human will or the work of time has become a symbolic element of the memorial heritage of any community.”2 According to Nora, lieux de mémoire “emerge in two stages.” First, “moments of ...

  • Forum Introduction: Intention and the Eighteenth-Century Text
    • Abstract: At least since W. K. Wimsatt and Monroe Beardsley’s “The Intentional Fallacy” (1946), intention has played an uneasy role in the interpretation of cultural artifacts. In the wake of their seminal essay, critics warred over the meaning, use, and abuse of intention in art and culture. While the 1970s and 1980s saw writers of a post-structuralist persuasion radicalizing Wimsatt and Beardsley’s attack by linking the latter’s fallacy with their own anti-humanist stance, the 1990s witnessed a resurgence of critics defending intention as an analytic category. These decades demonstrated that more was at stake in debates about intention than critical praxis; ethics, politics, and institutional formations were all tied into ... Read More

    • Abstract: What kind of work are we doing when we attend to intention' What disciplinary protocols must we abide by' And what kinds of criticism do we produce, whether we intend to or not' I want to use this brief space to raise what are for me rather urgent methodological questions about what happens when we (I include myself here) turn to philosophy—in particular, to contemporary philosophy—to clarify some of the messiness that surrounds a concept like intention as we encounter it in and around literary texts. In doing so, I take up Jonathan Kramnick’s implicit call in his book, Actions and Objects from Hobbes to Richardson, for just such a conversation.1 I say “implicit” because this call is to be found in a footnote to ...

  • A Tissue of False Memories
    • Abstract: Traditionally defined historical fields—like eighteenth-century studies—can be charged fairly with an under-developed relationship to theory and to certain kinds of conceptual abstraction. Yet it is also the case (though less frequently acknowledged) that on the theory side of things, an overly crude sense of the past leads to ill informed assumptions and prejudices about history. A crude sense of the past hampers our capacity to understand, as Thomas Pfau puts it, “how ideas and conceptions actually develop over time—viz., as a long, if uneven dialectical progression.”1 In telescoping historical time, in other words, we fail to understand both the past and contemporary realities as well as we might.2I will explore ...

  • Art, Intention, and the Constitutive “I”
    • Abstract: Can the search for intention lead one closer to a work of art' The answer, which is, “yes, so long as you know where to look,” is, of course, widely contested. New Critics, influentially, thought that following the crumbs of intention lured one away from the work, into the obscuring wood of biography and document. Much post-Kantian critique, meanwhile, has tried to bypass or weaken the main premise supporting an intentionalist view of art, which is that humans are the producers of meanings. Thus, according to Adorno, the great achievement of late Beethoven was the discovery of a negative subjectivity: “Touched by death, the hand of the master sets free the masses of material that he used to form; its tears and ...

  • Why Memory Matters: Surviving Intentions
    • Abstract: Recently, critical approaches to the novel have moved away from psychological accounts of interiority, or inwardness, in literary characters to a new materialism that equates persons with matter, and subjects with objects.1 This understanding of the novel in its early form makes sense in the period of intellectual history that saw the invention of neurology and often conflated mental states with physiological phenomena. In many ways, the Enlightenment was obsessed with matter. The long eighteenth-century rise of market capitalism and social commerce, alongside the early modern scientific discovery of what neuroscience now calls the “embodied mind,” promoted a highly materialist understanding of personhood. The ... Read More

  • Incoherent Intentions and the Need for Narrative
    • Abstract: By standard philosophical accounts, if someone judges it best to do something and believes him or herself free to do it, then he or she will intentionally do it. But, as Donald Davidson and other analytic philosophers have asked, how then do we account for the phenomenon classically called akrasia, in which an individual freely and knowingly acts against his or her judgment of what it is best to do'1 Modern philosophy has indeed struggled to understand how individuals freely contradict their stated intentions in their intentional actions.2 This became a distinctive explanatory problem during the Enlightenment with the rise of mechanistic and materialist models of body and mind. In the tradition of Newton ... Read More

  • Sexual Intention in Pornography
    • Abstract: Did eighteenth-century people intend to have sex' We have known at least since Frances Ferguson’s “Rape and the Rise of the Novel” that volitional states do not tell the whole story of subjects’ relationships to the sex acts their bodies engage in. For women in particular, whose bodies are regularly sexually instrumentalized irrespective of their intention, the potential disjointedness between consciousness and embodied sex act can be seen as proof of an “ongoing condition of the impossibility of consenting,” an injustice whose exposure becomes Clarissa’s singular mission after Lovelace’s penetrative rape.1 Sandra Macpherson has shown this form of sexual harm to extend to masculine persons in her discussion of ...

  • Forum Introduction Tolerance, Free Speech, and Civility from Voltaire to
           Charlie Hebdo
    • Abstract: On 7 January 2015, terrorists entered the offices of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, slaughtered twelve editors and cartoonists and wounded several more. The next day, in an article titled “Écrasé par l’infâme: Un journal héritier de la tradition satirique à la française à la défense d’une liberté d’expression absolue,” the media critic of Le Devoir noted that “La lutte contre l’intolérance (l’ ‘infâme’ de Voltaire) a été la grande affaire de Voltaire et des Lumières.”1 In the days and weeks that followed the author of the Traité sur la tolérance was repeatedly enlisted on behalf of Charlie Hebdo’s right to speak out against religious fanaticism in the name of reason. On 11 January Parisians held ... Read More

  • The Mahomet Paradox: The Necessity of an Impossible Text
    • Abstract: I want to begin with a provocation: Voltaire’s 1741 tragedy Mahomet is the most important text by this author to teach right now.1 Unapproachable, racist, offensive, outdated, the depiction of Islam’s prophet as a conniving hypocrite leading a fearsome army of deluded zealots in Mahomet forces us as scholars and teachers to confront the contradictions of Enlightenment idealism and its inherent intolerance more than any of Voltaire’s other texts. In Mahomet, one must address the messy interface of religious extremism, violence, laïcité [secularism], entertainment, free speech, and prejudice that is at the heart of what can properly be called a civil war, currently being fought in francophone Europe.A successful and ...

  • The Ambivalence of Mockery
    • Abstract: If we take an abstract view of things, forgetting momentarily what we know and considering the attack on the office of Charlie Hebdo as a future possibility, it does not appear obvious that this event would necessarily come to be associated, as it has, with an eighteenth-century writer and a debate on the place of Enlightenment principles in today’s societies. Although the contributors to Charlie Hebdo had been variously referred to as “progressives,” “republicans,” “democrats,” “secular,” “rationalists,” and “humanists,” it is possible to outline the history of events leading up to January 2015, as Jane Weston Vauclair and David Vauclair do in a recent book, with almost no mention of Voltaire.1 There is something ...

  • Voltaire, Tolerance, Indifférence, and the Limits of Free Speech
    • Abstract: As this cartoon by Patrick Chappatte shows, even prior to the murderous attacks of January 2015, Voltaire was closely associated with Charlie Hebdo and with its editors’ efforts to fend off accusations of defamation and blasphemy (fig. 1). Although the famous quotation that he utters here was in fact fabricated by Evelyn Beatrice Hall (using the pseudonym, S. G. Tallentyre), it has been broadly accepted as an accurate characterization of Voltaire’s attitude in matters of philosophical protest.1 Originated in English and long limited to the Anglo-Saxon world, today the saying has great currency even in Voltaire’s native France. The philosophe has thus acquired emblematic status as an unconditional champion of free ... Read More

  • Radical Islam, Tolerance, and the Enlightenment
    • Abstract: Although our principal subject is Voltaire and the shadow cast by his legacy following the Charlie Hebdo attacks, I would like to begin by addressing another eighteenth-century author whose legacy also happens to loom over the massacre that took place in Paris on 7 January 2015. This author is Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab, a man who lived from 1703 to 1792, and was pretty much contemporaneous with the siècle des Lumières, yet whose philosophy can be traced to the fundamentalist ideology of contemporary groups like ISIS and Al-Qaeda.A native of the province of Najd in central Arabia, Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab left his homeland in the late 1720s to study in Basra, and it was during his time in the Iraqi city that he ...

  • Dissensus and Toleration: Reconsidering Tolerance in the Age of
           Enlightenment
    • Abstract: What do we mean when we speak of the Age of Enlightenment as the Age of tolerance' This contribution seeks to address what may at first glance seem an obvious question but turns out upon reflection to warrant serious consideration. For we know that the so-called Age of Reason was also an era of religious and political strife during which violence and fanaticism were omnipresent. Indeed, Enlightenment Europe was largely dominated by the conflicts that arose from the presence of rival faiths vying for political power and control. In the British Isles as well as on the continent in the lands regulated by the Treaty of Westphalia, violence and war fueled by religious zeal were regular and common occurrences. The period ...

  • On Giving and Taking Offense
    • Abstract: Soon after the attacks of Friday, 13 November 2015 in Paris, John Kerry said this at a press conference:There’s something different about what happened [Friday] from Charlie Hebdo, and I think everybody would feel that. There was a sort of particularized focus… a rationale that you could attach yourself to, somehow, and say, okay, they’re really angry because of this and that. This Friday was absolutely indiscriminate.1Indiscriminate attacks against civilians, including children, have become wretchedly familiar. To be sure, the assassins are never at a loss for an explanation: tit for tat, retaliations for such and such military action. But Kerry was not wrong to make a distinction: the victims of Charlie Hebdo had ... Read More
