The conference theme is "The Innovative Eighteenth Century."

is one that fits your paper idea. Abstracts should be submitted directly
to the panel chair.

You may also contact the conference organizer directly if you have a
paper idea that does not fit any panel on the list, or you wish to
suggest a panel that you have already filled: Susan Spencer, Professor of
English, University of Central Oklahoma, Edmond OK 73034-0184,
sspencer_at_ucok.edu.

Our conference hotel will be the historic Skirvin Hilton. Planned events
include an opera presentation and cocktails on the roof of the Oklahoma
City Museum of Art, which will feature a two-floor exhibition of Roman
Art from the Louvre. Organized by the American Federation of Arts and
the Musée du Louvre, this traveling exhibit represents the largest number
of loaned pieces from the Louvre for any single show, and the OKCMOA will
be one of only three U.S. venues.

We will also tour the grounds of the Oklahoma City National Memorial and
enjoy a plenary banquet at the top of the exclusive Petroleum Club, the
highest building in the city and the favored haunt of high rollers in the
oil and gas business. The plenary speaker will be Richard Serrano of
Rutgers University, who will speak on "Ancient Feelings & Incomplete
Journeys: A Chinese Woman Poet at the End of the Eighteenth Century."
