E21: Presentivism in the Eighteenth-Century Studies Classroom

In its manifesto, the V21 Collective asserts that “Victorian Studies has fallen prey to positivist historicism: a mode of inquiry that aims to do little more than exhaustively describe, preserve, and display the past” and advocates for “a new openness to presentism: an awareness that our interest in the period is motivated by certain features of our own moment.” At the 2018 ASECS, the same question was asked of eighteenth-century studies: as a discipline, have we “fallen prey to positivist historicism,” and would it benefit us to be open to presentism? Do we need our own V21, or E21?

In the preface to Louis Lémery’s translation of his 1702 Traité des aliments, he argues that “the Ground-work of our Preservation, consists chiefly in a Knowledge of suiting Foods to every Constitution, as it best agrees with; and so the Knowledge we ought to be most desirous of, should be that of Foods” (ix-x). Diet and survival were salient concerns throughout the eighteenth century, and, in turn, literature is bursting with references to the production and consumption of food. However, foodstuffs in relation to health is still a relatively overlooked topic in long eighteenth-century scholarship (approximately 1660-1832).

This panel welcomes papers that explore, but are by no means limited to:

Job Market Crash Course: Five Ways to Make a Great Impression

I am seeking roundtable papers/presentations that will foster a discussion about common questions that arise for graduate students and postdocs as they enter the job market. Advice will address careers both in academia and in alt-ac. The session is intended to create a space in which seasoned professionals and early career scholars can share tips and ideas, describe job application experiences, and foster mentorship relationships.

To that end, roundtable participants are asked to provide suggestions and advice on five of the thorniest aspects of job hunting:

*Questions to ask (and avoid) during a campus interview
