The eighteenth-century was a period of great enthusiasm for experimentation and implementation. In government, in economics, in all the sciences as they came to be established, in publication, in all the arts, in short, all were keen on implementing what were largely theoretical (and quite often utopian) notions. When we return to Saint Simons Island, Georgia, in February our theme will be Dreaming and Becoming, and (among other things, of course) we will consider the slippage, sometimes fortunate and other times not, between what was thought to be coming and what came to be. As broad as this subject is, we welcome papers [and panels] on this and all subjects relevant to our period and especially to its people who dreamed and schemed, and intentionally or not, for good or ill, made us what we are.
