2009 SEASECS Conference
Hosted by Winthrop University
in Charlotte, NC

“Tricks of the Trade”

Winthrop University will host the next SEASECS Conference, March 6-8,
2009. Held in the middle of the second largest banking center in the
United States, next year’s conference will naturally explore all subjects
related to the interrelationship between artistic, cultural, economic,
and commercial progressions (and regressions) during the long eighteenth
century. We will also welcome topics that seek to unveil the various
alterations or “tricks” within specific literary genres or modes of
entertainment during the same period. Of course, this theme is only a
suggestion, and we cordially invite papers and panels that address all
types of subject areas, including art, drama, printing, music, history,
religion, race, and gender, etc. Plenaries will include a presentation
by Pat Rogers as well as a Baroque music and dance performance by Barry
Bauguess, John O’Brien, and Paige Whitley-Bauguess (for more information
on this performance, please visit

Conference accommodations will be at The Renaissance Southpark Hotel,
only ten minutes from the airport, and right in the heart of the
Southpark area of Charlotte. The youngest “Queen City” brags a vibrant
city life, with wonderful museums like The Mint Museum of Art, The Mint
Museum of Craft and Design, and the Museum of the New South. SEASECS
attendees may also enjoy nearby Historic Brattonsville, the James K. Polk
Historical Site, or the Latta Plantation. They may also like to visit
the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center, the Afro American Cultural Center,
or the newest thriving arts and cultural district of NoDa (at the
intersection of North Davidson and 36th St.) for great music, great food,
and independent galleries. Finally, for those inclined, The Renaissance
Hotel places you right next to great shopping: Neiman Marcus and
Nordstrom’s are just a couple of the new additions to South Park Mall,
but one mustn’t miss Phillip’s Place or The Specialty Shops, literally a
couple of blocks away.

We look forward to seeing you!
