The Bloomington Eighteenth-Century-Studies Workshop has been an annual event since 2002. Our usual format consists of intense discussion of pre-circulated papers and an occasional lecture, interspersed with ample opportunities for socializing and refreshment. Participants are selected by an interdisciplinary committee; the Workshop covers most costs for those chosen.
The Workshop is held every year in May; its theme is announced the previous autumn and submissions are due in January.
This year's Workshop will be held on May 18-20, 2023. Please see the Call for Papers for this year's theme: "Bodily Autonomies, Autonomous Bodies."
