Call for Papers: Midwestern American Society for 18th-Century Studies (MWASECS) annual meeting in Madison WI on October 11-13. Deadline: August 15.
MWASECS, the midwestern regional affiliate of the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies, seeks proposals for individual papers (with abstracts) and complete or nearly-complete panels on any aspect of the "long" eighteenth century, 1660-1830. Panels will consist of three or four papers, with a Q&A session following. This year's general theme is Emergence/Emergents/Emerging, which may be addressed in any number of ways. MWASECS is an interdisciplinary organization so paper topics need not be limited to literary subjects.
