Welcome to EC/ASECS

East Central/American Society for Eighteenth Century Studies

Member Levels

  The East-Central/American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies held its first meeting in 1970, a few months after the inaugural meeting of the American Society for Eighteenth Century Studies (ACECS), of which it is an affiliate. EC/ASECS's region includes most of the Mid-Atlantic area: Delaware, Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey, Maryland, Washington DC, Virginia, and West Virginia.   

  The Society meets every fall, usually in October or November. Members represent virtually every discipline related to eighteenth-century studies. Our members hail from coast to coast, from Canada to Mexico, and from various points overseas.
