ISECS 2019 Congress: Info for ASECS Members

January 7, 2019

ISECS is an umbrella organization comprising eighteenth-century societies from around the world. It was founded to promote the growth, development and coordination of studies and research relating to the eighteenth century in all aspects of its cultural heritage (historical, philosophical, ideological, religious, linguistic, literary, scientific, artistic, juridical) in all countries, without exception.   Every four years, ISECS holds an International Congress on the Enlightenment.

 

ASECS is a member of ISECS, which entitles ASECS members to submit proposals to read papers or serve on panels at the Congress. 

  

The British Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies will host the 2019 ISECS International Congress on the Enlightenment at the University of Edinburgh on 14-19 July; the Congress theme is “Enlightenment Identities.”   Fully organized panels of three or (sometimes) four speakers, along with a chair, may be submitted, and indeed are strongly encouraged. Proposals for pairs of related panels, to run consecutively, also may be submitted. Individuals can submit papers, which will be allocated to an appropriate panel session, usually of three papers of no more than twenty minutes. Proposals for roundtables and alternative formats are also invited.  The final deadline for submission of papers and panel proposals to the International Congress is Friday, 1 February 2019.

 

ISECS will provide a £20,000 Congress bursary to facilitate the participation and involvement of early career scholars. ASECS members are eligible to apply for these bursaries; ASECS is an annual contributor to the bursary fund.

 

Information on the Congress and a link to the submission form may be found at https://www.bsecs.org.uk/isecs/en/submit/.
