Retirement, Reappraisal, and Renewal in the Eighteenth Century, November 7-9, 2013.
Retirement, often leading to reappraisal and renewal, was an important theme in areas as disparate as philosophy and politics, art history and literature, military affairs and country living. We invite papers from all fields of study on the representation and uses of retirement in the eighteenth century. The conference will be held at the Doubletree Hotel, 237 South Broad St., Philadelphia PA.
