>sessions of five speakers, and for 'alternative format' sessions of
>your devising.

>While proposals on all and any eighteenth-century topics are welcome,
>this year the conference theme will be 'Eighteenth-Century Lives'. We
>would thus particularly welcome proposals for papers that address any
>aspect of life writing or personal experiences, whether individual or
>group, throughout the long eighteenth century and in any part of the
>world.
>
>Please submit a 250-word abstract of the proposed paper, panel, or
>roundtable (including names of speakers, panel chair, and summaries of
