Call for Papers | New Eyes on the Eighteenth Century Dinner Symposium

Posted in Calls for Papers by Editor on January 3, 2014

For graduate students and new PhDs in and around the Boston/New England region:

Fifth Annual New Eyes on the Eighteenth Century Dinner Symposium
Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, 10 February 2014

Proposals due by 17 January 2014

We are pleased to announce the fifth annual symposium featuring new work from emerging scholars (graduate students and new PhDs)  living or studying in the region. This year we are again adopting a hybrid model, and we therefore invite abstracts for either of two formats:
• a 5-minute presentation of a specific problem, challenge, or conundrum in your research, followed by a dedicated time for problem-solving, discussion, and advice
• a 10-minute paper drawn from a larger piece of work: a seminar paper, your dissertation, or another current project, followed by a brief time for questions.

We aim to represent in a lively forum a broad spectrum of disciplines, national cultures, and intellectual approaches to eighteenth-century studies. Graduate students and new PhDs who wish to participate are asked to submit a one-page abstract electronically to Ruth Perry (rperry@mit.edu) and Sue Lanser (lanser@brandeis.edu) by Friday, January 17. Those selected will be notified within a week so that you will have time to prepare your brief presentation.

We ask all our colleagues to circulate this notice widely, to encourage graduate students to participate, and to make plans to join us on Monday, February 10. And please remember that ours is a long eighteenth century.

Monday, February 10, 2014, 6:00–8:30, Barker Center, Room 133
Sponsored by the Harvard Humanities Seminar on Eighteenth-Century Studies
