>Given a political season in a political city, the 2008 conference takes
>up the theme of politics. Proposed papers and panels might explore--but
>are not limited to--themes of ruling and being ruled, power and
>subversion, dynasties, succession, and shifting power structures. The
>relationships among absolutism, constitutional monarchy, and other forms
>of representative government suggest both European and Trans-Atlantic
>emphases, but we welcome all varieties of the eighteenth-century
>political experience, including British, European, African, Native
>American, as well as representations of the political in what might be
>traditionally thought of as the non-political discourses of science,
>technology, and medicine. Papers exploring the political in art, music,
>drama, poetry, and fiction are welcome. We invite you to address the
>broadest range of issues relating to the literature, history, and
>culture of politics in the long eighteenth century.
>
>The meeting will take place November 6-9, 2008 at the Georgetown
>Marriott and on the Georgetown University Campus, located in the heart
>of that eighteenth-century village, George Town, established on the
>Potomac in 1751 and named in honor of King George II.  Excursions to Mt.
>Vernon, as well as various musical entertainments are in the planning
>stages. For information about the Georgetown Marriott, see

>Panels and paper proposals should be addressed to the program chair,

>Eighteenth-Century Thought is an international, interdisciplinary
>annual founded for the purpose of supporting study of early modern
>thought by publishing research pertinent to the fields of philosophy,
>natural philosophy, medicine, law, historiography, political theory,
>religion, economics, and the human sciences as they were conceived and
>pursued from the mid seventeenth century to the early nineteenth
>century. The journal's goal is to distribute    such studies in an
>overtly interdisciplinary forum, comprising not only papers on these
>subjects of common interest to scholars of  these various disciplines,
>but also such studies that themselves exemplify the highest standards of
>interdisciplinary research.
>
>Eighteenth-Century Thought welcomes papers and substantive discussion
>notes examining early modern thought in the areas of inquiry identified.
>The journal is interested not only in publishing individual essays in
>these disciplines, but is especially interested in publishing studies
>that are themselves interdisciplinary, embodying methods or subject
>matter from more than one of these disciplines. Submissions, including
>any illustrations, tables, or    diagrams, should be e-mailed to the
>editor in triplicate, with the author identified only on a separate
>cover page; all other indications of the identity of the author in body
>of and notes to the text must be suppressed. An abstract of
>approximately 200 words should accompany each submission.
>
>Eighteenth-Century Thought accepts submissions from 5,000 to 12,000
>words inclusive. Submissions must be typewritten, double-spaced
>throughout, with wide margins. Usage in the journal follows that
>described in The Chicago Manual of Style, 15th ed.    Footnotes should
>be numbered sequentially at the bottom of the appropriate page and
>should follow the documentary note format described in The Chicago
>Manual. The journal publishes papers     written in English. Quotations
>in modern European languages need not but may be translated into English.
>
>Published annually in the spring, Eighteenth-Century Thought is a
>refereed journal; each submission is subject to blind review by two
>outside readers as well as by members of the Editorial Board.
