Studies in Eighteenth-Century Culture
Volume 43

Studies in Eighteenth-Century Culture (SECC) is an interdisciplinary hardbound annual volume published for the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies by the Johns Hopkins University Press. For the 2013 volume (43) the editors solicit revised versions of papers read at national and regional conferences of the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies and its affiliates during 2010-2012. They encourage theoretically informed, academically rigorous essays that reflect new directions for research in the field. Essays from previously under-represented disciplines are particularly welcome. Now digitized as part of Project Muse, SECC is included in the membership fees of Sponsors and Patrons of the Society, and is offered to all members at discount.

Guidelines for Submission: conference papers presented at regional and national meetings of ASECS and its affiliate societies between JULY 1, 2010 and JUNE 30, 2012 are eligible. Papers should be substantially revised from their conference version and use the Chicago Manual of Style for annotation. Submissions are normally written in English but may include other commonly-used modern European languages, and typically average 20 to 25 double-spaced pages in length. Contributions will be judged according to the highest standards of scholarship by blind review. Authors are thus asked to avoid identifying themselves throughout (any reference to one's own scholarship should be made in the third person). The editors of SECC cannot consider papers already submitted to other journals. The deadline for submission is August 21, 2012. Final decisions will be made by December 1, 2012. Electronic submission is preferred: Timothy.Erwin@unlv.edu. Submissions in hard copy may be sent in triplicate to:
