American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
Session Proposals for the 53rd Annual Meeting
Hyatt Regency St. Louis at the Arch,
St. Louis, Missouri
March 9 - March 11, 2023
Proposals for ASECS Caucus and Regional and Affiliate society sessions must be submitted no later than 25 April 2022 via THIS GOOGLE FORM. One additional note: The form asks you to select up to 4 keyword tags for the proposed session. Please choose those carefully, including by not selecting 4 if doing so is unnecessary. There were some complaints in 2022 about too many sessions on x or y theme happening simultaneously, but that was unavoidable when 60+ sessions were tagged with the same keyword, as was often the case.
GUIDELINES FOR SESSIONS:
-View the Reforms to the Program Committee here.
The 2023 Annual Meeting will include guaranteed sessions sponsored by caucuses and affiliate societies. Caucuses may propose two (2) and affiliate and regional societies may propose one (1) guaranteed session.
The Program Committee also invites proposals for sessions in other formats, as well as for pre-conference workshops. In addition to explaining what the session would contribute to the Annual Meeting, special proposals should include a detailed description of the format and logistical requirements (e.g., technology, type of meeting space, particular days/times); an estimate of additional costs to participants or to ASECS (if any); and an explanation of how people would be chosen to participate (if it is not open to all conference attendees). If the event is a workshop that would have a facilitator or main presenter(s), provide a brief description of their expertise. The Program Committee may contact proposers for additional information before deciding on whether special sessions will be included on the Annual Meeting program. Proposals that cannot be accommodated in Baltimore may be considered for later Annual Meetings.
Please note that members now may propose no more than one session. If a member submits more than one session form, the Program Committee will consider the one with the earliest time stamp.
