The Eighteenth-Century Research Seminar (ECRS) series invites proposals for twenty-minute papers from postgraduate and early-career researchers addressing any aspect of eighteenth-century history, culture, literature, education, art, music, geography, religion, science, and philosophy. The seminar series seeks to provide a regular inter-disciplinary forum for postgraduate and early-career researchers working on the eighteenth century to meet and discuss their research.

ECRS will take place at the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (IASH) in Edinburgh.  Seminars will take place on Wednesdays between 4:30-6pm, on a fortnightly basis from 24 January to 4 April 2018.  Each seminar will consist of two papers, one from a University of Edinburgh-based researcher and one from a researcher based in another higher education institution, followed by a drinks reception. We can provide up to £85 for non-University of Edinburgh speakers’ travel expenses. 

Abstracts of up to 300 words along with a brief biography and institutional affiliation should be submitted in Word document to: edinburgh18thcentury@gmail.com.  In your email, please also indicate any scheduling restrictions you may have.

The closing date for submissions is Monday 27 November 2017.
