The International Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies (ISECS) is pleased to announce the 2018 International Seminar for Early Career Eighteenth-Century Scholars. Colleagues from all fields of eighteenth-century studies are invited to submit abstracts for this one-week event. Formerly called the East-West Seminar, the International Seminar for Early Career Eighteenth-Century Scholars brings together young researchers from a number of countries each year. The 2018 meeting will take place in Viterbo, Italy and will be organized by Prof. Francesca Saggini and the Dipartimento di studi linguistico-letterari, storico-filosofici e giuridici – DISTU.
The seminar will be held from Monday, September 10 to Friday, September 14, 2018 in Viterbo, under the direction of Francesca Saggini (English Literature, Tuscia), with Antonella Del Prete (History of Philosophy, Tuscia), Paolo Procaccioli (Italian Literature, Tuscia), Saverio Ricci (History of Philosophy and Intellectual History, Tuscia), Gino Roncaglia (Digital Humanities, Tuscia). The seminar’s focus on praxis will give early career scholars the opportunity to work closely with these specialists, individually or in small groups, during workshops devoted to theoretical issues, bibliographic research and research methodologies. More specific training opportunities will include know-how sessions and discussions on professionalisation (getting published, the activities and publications most valued by employers in the education sector, the peer-review system), digital methods, editorial skills. The seminar will also be an opportunity to engage with international scholars who will present their research in areas cognate to the Seminar Aims and Themes: Prof. Rosamaria Loretelli (Emerita, Napoli Federico II/Vice-President ISECS), Prof. Peter Sabor (McGill University, Montréal), and Dr. Anne Toner (Trinity College, University of Cambridge).
