Abstract: At an August 6, 2020, anti-racism teach-in in the long eighteenth century, speakers Shelby Johnson, Brigitte Fielder, and Kerry Sinanan urged academics to reexamine our approach to pedagogy and research in light of the current racial reckoning in the United States and beyond.1 Atrocities such as the killing of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, which sparked Black Lives Matter protests across the country and reverberated around the globe, have galvanized movements to interrogate how historical and ideological develop-ments in our period of study continue to shape our world, as well as our approaches to re-searching and teaching Romanticism and the long eighteenth century. The Woman of Colour can allow us to do just that: the novel offers the opportunity to foreground critical race theory in Romantic and eighteenth-century studies, as well as to “pull the threads of our readings into our current moment,” as Fielder put it.
