The EC/ASECS 2018 organizers seek papers  and panels on any aspect of the eighteenth century, especially  ones that address the conference theme of “Performing the Eighteenth Century.”  The  theme should be taken broadly; we aim to attract papers from all disciplines and welcome proposals that examine the ways in which textual and visual works, leisure, politics, religion, print, landscapes, and a host of other concepts and topics “performed” in the long eighteenth century. Papers that  explore  actual theatrical, operatic, and musical performances are encouraged. 

 Deadline for panel proposals seeking presenters: March 30, 2018.

Deadlines for individual proposals: June 1, 2018.
