“Echoes of Heritage and Place”

The Southeastern American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies will hold its 2010 annual conference in Johnson City, Tennessee. This year’s theme is “Echoes of Heritage and Place.” The deadline for individual papers and full panels has been extended to November 9, 2009.

Like all eras of transition, the long eighteenth century prompted its creative and intellectual community to consider the consequences of change, often in meditative evaluation of the role of tradition, self, and society in an expanding world. We welcome proposals for papers and full panels that explore the topics of heritage and place as well as topics designed to complement, challenge or comment on our overall conference theme. You can find the Current List of Panels here. Proposals for papers should be submitted to panel chairs no later than October 8, 2009.  Abstracts should be approximately 250-300 words; please include your school affiliation and both physical and e-mail addresses with your submission.

We also invite proposals that address other topics. Proposals for individual papers and full panels should be submitted no later than October 8, 2009, to Dr. Judith Slagle, East Tennessee State University, English Department, P. O. Box 70683, Johnson City, TN, 37614. Proposals can also be sent electronically to Dr. Slagle at . Proposals for papers should be approximately 250-300 words; please include your school affiliation and both physical and e-mail addresses with your submission.
