East-Central American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies had its first meeting in 1970. From its founding, the regional mid-Atlantic academic society has been a highly welcoming, supportive group that has worked hard to foster an environment members value. It has generated collaborations, launched careers, inspired courses, spawned books, provided incisive feedback, and much more. Please join us for the upcoming meeting and experience EC/ASECS collegiality, support, and intellectual community firsthand. To learn more about the society, visit our website.
