******************  CALL FOR PAPERS  ****************************

THE WESTERN SOCIETY FOR EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY STUDIES

1997 ANNUAL CONFERENCE
February 14 - 16, 1997
University of California, Berkeley

"Science and Sociability in Eighteenth-Century France"

Scholars of the eighteenth century have become increasingly interested in
the practices and/or representations of sociabilty in the development of
French Enlightment culture. Furthermore, although an interest in
eighteenth-century sociability loosely groups much of this work, scholars
have taken their cues from a wide variety of different disciplinary
perspectives. Jurgen Habermas' work and the historiography of the
eighteenth-century public sphere that it has spawned is certainly one
dominant point of departure, but equally rich insights have been achieved
by those who have approached sociability via the lenses of the history of
private life, the development of consumer society, the birth of civil
society and modern political culture, the history of colonialism and
empire, the origins of modern subjectivity, and the devolpment of modern
aesthetics. Parallel with these trends, historians of early modern science
have also been drawn to the role practices and/or representations of
sociabilty have played in the development of modern science. The goal of
this panel is to explore the relationship between these two important
historical projects, projects with much in common but projects which too
often seem to pass in the night in today's highly disciplinized academic
culture. Paper submissions from any perspective or disciplinary vantage
point which explore the relationship between science (defined as broadly as
necessary) and the French enlightenment culture of sociability  are
encouraged.
