>We are looking for three papers to present on a panel
>titled "A Matter of Conscience:  Guilt, Salvation, and
>the Self in the Eighteenth Century" for the American
>Society for Eighteenth Century Studies (ASECS)
>Conference in Atlanta, GA March 22-25, 2007. 
>
>The ́conscienceî is at the center of some of the most
>important theoretical issues of eighteenth-century
>political theory, jurisprudence, and theology.
>Implicated in questions of sin and guilt, innocence
>and salvation, and the boundary between the public and
>private, the ́conscienceî served as a cornerstone in
>the construction of new forms of selfhood.  The aim of
>this panel is to historicize the category of
>conscience in two ways.  First, it will explore the
>ways that the conscience was defined within a range of
>eighteenth-century discourses ñ literary, political,
>judicial, theological, psychological.  Second, it will
>also invite papers that move  beyond iterations and
>explanations of the theoretical category by offering a
>social history of the conscience.  Specifically, we
>want to invite papers that explore whether and how the
>theoretical category was put into practice by both
>institutions of authority and ordinary people in their
>everyday lives.
