Papers adressing the complex issues of the methods, processes, difficulties, and ecstatic successes
of eighteenth-century self-improvement are welcomed for a panel entitled "18th-Century Self-
Improvement: Reinvention and Revolution" to be held during the South Central Society for 18th-
Century Studies' annual meeting February 21-23, 2008 in beautiful, reinvented New Orleans.

For the purposes of our conversations in February (and beyond), we will define "self-improvement"
broadly to include essays about spiritual, emotional, physical, political, and geographic
improvement, but are especially interested in essays that emphasize the intersections between
literature and culture.

Please send essay abstracts to the panel organizer, Diane E. Boyd, at:
