SEASECS 2021: “Oceans Rise, Empires Fall: Tidal Shifts in the Eighteenth Century”

February 18-20, 2021 in Ft. Myers, Florida

Session Proposal Deadline: 6.15.2020

(Individual Papers and Fully-formed Panels Deadline: 10.15.2020)

 

The 47th meeting of The Southeastern American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies (SEASECS) will take place February 18-20, 2021 in Ft. Myers, Florida, a historically rich, culturally vibrant city also known as a winter getaway for its warm temperatures, tropical scenery, and beautiful shorelines.

Situated on the gulf coast and the banks of the Caloosahatchee River, Ft. Myers has a distinct history informed by its relationship with land and water, which inspires our theme: “Oceans Rise, Empires Fall: Tidal Shifts in the Eighteenth Century.”

At this time, we invite session proposals related to this theme or any aspect of the long eighteenth century.  We welcome proposals for traditional panel and roundtable topics as well as innovative session formats.

Please send your session proposal including title, short description of the session format and topic, and your contact information, to Mary Crone-Romanovski at mromanovski@fgcu.edu by June 15, 2020. 

We will include submitted panel topics on the general CFP for SEASECS 2021. Fully-formed panels and individual paper proposals will be due by October 15, 2020.
