CFP: Eighteenth-Century Research Seminars Series 2016 (University of Edinburgh)

The Eighteenth-Century Research Seminars (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.

The ECRS will take place at the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (IASH) in Edinburgh on a monthly basis from January to May 2016. 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. Non-University of Edinburgh speakers’ travel expenses will be reimbursed up to £100.

Abstracts of up to 300 words along with a brief biography and institutional affiliation should be submitted in the body of an email to:

The closing date for submissions is Monday 2 November 2015.

For more information please see our website:

The ECRS is supported by the University of Edinburgh’s Researcher-Led Initiative Fund.
