This special issue on the Hispanic Enlightenment is a bold step made by the editors of ECTI to take our interdisciplinary collaborations beyond ASECS, AHA, ASA, MLA, and other scholarly gatherings. It is not organized around a theme such as critical race studies, or gender and sexuality studies, or empire, but rather presents a survey of new scholarship on the Spanish eighteenth century, thoroughly interdisciplinary in character. The idea is to offer several points of departure for readers interested in expanding their own teaching and research resources on the global Enlightenment. Contributors work interdisciplinarily within their academic departments or programs, and their academic homes are very different: English, Spanish, History, American Studies. They square up with the key critical statements in their essays on natural history, commerce, the fine arts, navigation, and the science of empire.
