>ISECS International Seminar for Junior Eighteenth Century Scholars
>
>The International Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies (ISECS) invites
>applications from scholars in all fields of eighteenth-century studies
>within the context of a one-week International Seminar for Junior
>Eighteenth-Century Scholars. In 2008, the meeting will take place in
>Pardubice (Czech Republic) and will be co-organized by the Czech
>National Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies and the Faculty of Arts
>of the University of Pardubice.
>The seminar will be held from Monday the 8th  to Friday the 13th of
>September 2008 in Pardubice, under the direction of Milena Lenderova
>(University of Pardubice).
>
>The theme proposed is Friendship, Conviviality, Hospitality. This may be
>taken to refer to family networks and relationships within the couple
>and between generations, subjects which have had new light shed upon
>them in the past twenty years thanks to new research by anthropologists,
>historians and demographers on the image of the family in the Eighteenth
>Century. However, from the moment of birth to that of death,
>intermediaries have never been lacking between the family and the rest
>of society, be they people, practices, places of sociability or
>institutions. Firstly the family knew how to delegate certain of its
>roles: the use of wet nurses, for example, was democratised during the
>Eighteenth Century. Other subjects of inquiry may include
>apprenticeship, school, or the voyage of initiation and training
>reserved for the privileged classes - the Grand Tour. All of these forms
>of socialisation, from the most humble to the most prestigious, bring
>into question the notions of friendship, conviviality and hospitality in
>the Eighteenth Century.
>Specific places of sociability such as the salon, the cafe, the inn or
>even the learned academy, as well as the forms of writing to which these
>places lent themselves, correspondance, personal diaries, travel
>journals, may all be subjects of study.
>
>Travel and hotel assistance will be provided (in part or in full) by the
>organizers. Lunch will be served on site; the cost of evening meals is
>covered by participants.
>
>The seminar is limited to 15 participants. The proposals (approx. 2
>pages, single-spaced) should be based on an original research project
>(e.g. a doctoral dissertation) that deals with one of the aspects
>mentioned above. Because this is a seminar rather than a conference,
>each participant will be given approximately one hour to present the
>texts and questions that will then form the basis of a group discussion.
>Preference will be given to scholars who are at the beginning of their
>academic career (PhD or equivalent for less than six years).
>The official languages are French and English.
>
>Applications should include the following information:
>- a brief curriculum vitae with date of PhD (or equivalent)
>- a list of principal publications and scholarly presentations
>- a brief description of the proposed paper (approx. 2 pages, single-spaced)
>- one letter of recommendation
>
>The deadline for abstracts is March 28, 2008. Applications should be
>sent either by mail or by e-mail to one of the following addresses:
