The Center for Eighteenth-Century-Studies has hosted a Spring Workshop every year (excepting 2020) since 2002. The typical format consists of intense discussion of pre-circulated papers and an occasional lecture, interspersed with ample opportunities for socializing and refreshment. We typically cover travel costs for all participants, who are selected by an interdisciplinary committee of scholars.
In most years the theme for the Spring Workshop is announced in autumn of the previous year. Proposals for papers and contributions are due in January. Please do visit our online open-access journal, The Workshop, for a selection of abstracts and comments from previous Spring Workshops.
This year's Workshop will be held on May 16-18, 2024, on the theme, "The Magical Eighteenth Century." The CFP is available here.
