Exoticism and Cosmopolitanism
Edited by Eugenia Zuroski Jenkins

This special issue will include an introduction written by distinguished scholar Dr. Zuroski Jenkins and a response essay from Dr. Srinivas Aravamudan, professor of English at Duke University. The collected essays by established and emerging international scholars offer original ways of thinking about the relationship between the exotic and the cosmopolitan in eighteenth-century literature and culture. Thinking beyond post-colonial analyses of exoticism that emphasize dialectic relationships between Western selves and non-Western "others," the issue presents a variety of instances in eighteenth-century European culture that incorporate hybrid, orientalized, and other ostensibly "global" forms that productively destabilize national identities. These essays demonstrate not only that "fiction" took many forms - theatrical, material, narrative - but also that it generated multiple models of agency in the context of expanded world commerce and nascent imperialism.
