SCSECS invites paper proposals for 2019 annual meeting. The paper submission deadline is Friday, December 14. A full list of panels can be found at scsecs.net. Please submit abstracts directly to the panel chair. If you don't see a panel that fits your paper idea, you can submit a proposal to conference co-organizer Ashley Bender at abender@twu.edu

The 2019 annual meeting will be held in Dallas, Texas from 21-23 February. This year’s theme is “The Eighteenth Century in Perspective,” considered in its broadest sense, although we welcome papers addressing any aspect of the long eighteenth century, and we encourage submissions from all disciplines. In addition to considering how “perspective” functioned in the eighteenth-century imagination—in literature, politics, science, philosophy, and the arts—proposals might also address this theme in light of our disciplinary practices and approaches to the study of eighteenth-century society and culture.
