Update on ASECS Annual Meeting in St. Louis, March 19-21

March 2, 2020

Dear ASECS Members,


Over the weekend, many of you made hotel reservations in St. Louis for our annual conference on March 19-21, and many of you also paid your registration fees.  Thank you for your support! 


As of this writing, the conference is still on.  We are monitoring the statements and evidence issuing from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other authorities about the COVID-19 virus carefully, but at the moment we do not see any reason to cancel.  We have set ourselves a deadline of next Monday, March 9, to make a final determination about whether to proceed with the conference.  We will be in touch with you again then.


Some airlines are offering reservations with no-fee flight change provisions at the moment.  We urge you to consider these options as you make your travel plans.

As always, you may send your questions and comments to the ASECS Business Office at asecsoffice@gmail.com.


Best wishes,

Jeff Ravel

President, American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
