Organized by Kyoko Takanashi (Indiana University, South Bend) and Annika Mann (Arizona State University)
The long Eighteenth Century is the time when ocular-centric thought established itself in Western society. Images and illustrations permeated textual spaces to the point that few books were printed without illustrations. From arts to sciences via fiction and geographic literature, the eighteenth-century citizen was therefore exposed to wide array of visual and textual combinations as part of his/her everyday life.
This one-day symposium will be held at Mount Royal University, Calgary, Canada on March 8, 2019.

HISTORICAL POETICS NOW
A Symposium at the University of Texas at Austin
November 7 to 10, 2019
Laura Mandell and Ivy Wilson
Lewis University, Romeoville, Illinois, July 30 - August 2, 2019
With a focus at once sharp and wide, Gothic Terror, Gothic Horror will stimulate an eclectic and inclusive conversation about the essence of the Gothic.
We invite the submission of abstracts that explore the conference theme. We welcome proposed panels of three related papers. Since this IGA conference is the first to be held in the United States, we encourage proposals that consider the theme in relation to the American Gothic.
The 44th Annual Meeting of the South Central Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies theme is "The Eighteenth Century in Perspective." The meeting will take place February 21-23, 2019, in Dallas, Texas. The full conference announcement is available at http://www.scsecs.net/scsecs/2019/2019cfp.html.
This panel seeks proposals on theater and performance of the long eighteenth-century, especially those that address the theme of perspective. Essays might consider the way that perspective functioned thematically in plays and other public performances, such as opera, dance, and music, and the ways that perspective (e.g., perspective scenery) affected the material conditions of performance. What perspectives did eighteenth-century audiences have on theater and performance? How did these perspectives in the public discourse shape the drama and performances of the period, and how was eighteenth-century society shaped by these cultural institutions?
