>Information and Call for Session Organizers

>The Eleventh ISECS Congress on the Enlightenment will take place 3-10
>August 2003 at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). It will be
>hosted by UCLA and the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
>(ASECS), whose annual meeting will be combined with the ISECS Congress,
>and organized by Peter Reill, Director of UCLA's Center for Seventeenth- and
>Eighteenth-Century Studies and William Andrews Clark Memorial Library,
>and John Sandbrook, Assistant Provost of UCLA's College of Letters and
>Science. A select committee of scholars from the region and the nation,
>representing all the major disciplines concerned with the era, will assist in
>the planning and organizing.
>
>UCLA invites all members of societies affiliated with ISECS to come to the
>Los Angeles Congress in 2003.  The official languages of the Congress will
>be English, French, and Spanish, chosen by the organizing committee on
>the basis of Los Angeles history and its unique position as a bridge between
>North, Central, and South America.  The Congress will be interdisciplinary,
>and though all proposals will be considered, the organizers encourage
>sections and roundtables on the theme of the global eighteenth century,
>hoping thereby to place the Enlightenment within a larger perspective.
>Included in the Congress plans is a film festival, "Filming the Eighteenth
>Century."  The festival will deal with the issues of representing
>the eighteenth
>century in motion pictures.
>
>Academic sessions will be of two types. The first, which accords with the
>innovation made at the Dublin conference and with customary ASECS
>practice, will consist of sessions focusing on particular topics.
>These will be
>organized by individual members and typically will include three or four
>speakers, a moderator, and a commentator.  The second type, addressing
>subjects of general interest, will be in the roundtable format: a number of
>scholars, rather than present formal papers, will make short statements
>leading to general discussion.  The committee, which aims to have
>presentations in almost every field of eighteenth-century scholarship,
>welcomes individual papers as well.  These will be arranged thematically,
>either in sessions or roundtables.
>
>A Call for Papers for sessions and roundtables, along with the names and e-
>mail address of the organizers, is now posted on the Congress website and
>its linked sites; a printed list is also available by contacting the
>UCLA Centre
>for 17th and 18th Century studies.  Please note that paper proposals should
>be submitted directly to the panel chair no later than September 15th, 2002!
>Members of affiliated societies will also receive a general call for papers.
>
>The Congress registration fee (provisional to be confirmed) is US $165 and
>covers all academic events, receptions/buffets (including an
>official university
>reception), tea, and coffee.  The registration fee does not cover
>accommodations at UCLA residence facilities or the Congress Dinner.  On
>Saturday, 9 August, optional excursions to places of interest in and around
>Los Angeles will be offered.  Congress participants will be welcome to attend
>all receptions and social events for a minimal fee, and information about
>guided tours to various local points of interest will be provided.  Grants for
>scholars from areas whose currency is weak, as well as scholarships for
>students, will be available.
>
>The academic and social activities of the Congress will last from Sunday
>evening, 3 August, through Sunday morning, 10 August 2003. The
>conference proceedings will take place on the 411-acre (166-hectares)
>campus of UCLA, ten miles (16km) from downtown Los Angeles and
>approximately eight miles (13 km) from Los Angeles International Airport.
>Surrounded by greenery and spacious mansions in the prime area of West
>Los Angeles, adjacent to the exclusive neighborhoods of Beverly Hills and
>Bel Air, the university is an oasis in the general bustle of city
>life.  Only four
>miles (6.2 km) from the Pacific Ocean, UCLA's climate is influenced by
>prevailing ocean breezes, making its average temperature in the first weeks
>of August about eighty degrees Fahrenheit (27 C) during the day and sixty
>degrees (16 C) in the evening, similar to a mild Mediterranean climate.
>
>With its spacious and beautiful campus, UCLA is an ideal location for a
>congress. The university residences, a new development of high-quality
>apartments close to the site of the Congress, offer excellent
>accommodations at a reasonable cost.  The residence facility provides free
>use of the campus sports complex, which includes outdoor swimming pools,
>a family recreational center with picnic facilities, a track/soccer [football]
>facility, and two modern gymnasiums.  The cafeterias serve good food at
>moderate prices.  A large block of rooms has been reserved at the UCLA
>residence halls for ISECS Congress participants.  We have also made
>special arrangements with a number of local hotels that offer
>accommodations ranging from moderate to deluxe.  In all cases, participants
>must make reservations directly for either the UCLA lodging or the local
>hotels.  Information will be available on the Congress website, and
>will include
>links to hotels and instructions for obtaining special ISECS rates.
>
>The west side of Los Angeles, where the university is situated, offers
>numerous venues for academic, cultural, and social activities. It is close to
>the J. Paul Getty Museum and Research Institute, the Los Angeles County
>Museum of Art, Beverly Hills, and California's famous beaches and beach
>cities such as Malibu and Santa Monica, all accessible by good bus
>connections. Slightly longer trips can take the visitor to Hollywood, downtown
>Los Angeles, the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Huntington Library and
>Botanical Gardens, the Norton Simon Museum, Universal Studios,
>Disneyland, and Disney's newest attraction, California Adventure. Though the
>campus is secluded, it is within reach of some of the most vibrant areas of
>Los Angeles, a city whose blend of cultural diversity is almost unmatched in
>the United States.
>
>While Los Angeles has more than enough to interest and entertain all those
>attending the Congress, the ISECS Eleventh Congress will also provide an
>opportunity for delegates to get acquainted with the West Coast of the United
>States. A selection of optional (extra-cost) three- and four-day tours to
>nearby points of interest, including San Francisco, Santa Barbara, San
>Diego, Las Vegas, and Yosemite National Park, will be offered both before
>and after the Congress. Further information about these options will be
>circulated during 2003.
