This volume presents a group of essays that evoke broad contexts and future avenues for work in the field of 18th-century studies. The contributors take up the question of identity, not as a fixed, stable property whose boundaries may be confidently mapped, but rather as a complex and unpredictable process navigating different discourses and modes of social insertion. They address issues that involve national, linguistic and cultural affiliations or call into question the relation of gender performance to literary persona.
