'modernity', with particular reference to the significance of European
intellectual culture in the Pacific. Possible topics might include law and
censorship, toleration, privilege, elite and popular cultures, gender and
sexuality, literature and literacy, bibliography,the state and political
freedom, global and local economies, travel and communication, scientific
investigation and race.
Offers of papers are invited from scholars working in the humanities on any
aspect of early modern studies related to these issues, or which take an
inter-disciplinary approach to the issues involved in studying the 'early
modern' in a Pacific context
FREEDOM is the 1994 theme of the Humanities Research Centre of the
Australian National University.
MILTON will be the subject of a major exhibition presented by the Alexander
Turnbull Library, whose Milton collection is ranked fifth in the world in
terms of the scope and quality of its holdings. The conference is timed to
