Sounding more and more familiar, isn't it?
COVID update
Postponement of "The Quixotic Eighteenth Century" from 2022 to 2023

After careful consideration of travel issues caused by the Omicron variant and consultation with the SCSECS board, we have regretfully made the decision to postpone the next meeting of the South Central Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies until 2023. Thank you to those of you who submitted panel ideas and abstracts. We will roll those over to the 2023 meeting, so you do not need to submit your idea a second time.

On a happier note, we look forward to seeing you--healthy, safe, and happy--in Bryan-College Station in 2023.

If you have not yet submitted a proposal, why not? Please see our Call for Papers and browse our list of the panels proposed so far.
