The Graduate Student Caucus of the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies (ASECS) hosts a luncheon and annual meeting during the ASECS annual meeting, organizes panels of professional and scholarly interest, runs a mentoring program to connect graduate students with scholars, awards a mentoring prize each year to recognize outstanding faculty, and generally promotes the “next generation” of eighteenth-century scholars.

The current GSC officers are:

Michelle Lyons-McFarland (Chair)
Kristin Distel (Co-Chair)
Mallory Anne Porch (Webmaster)

If you’re interested in submitting a post/article, here are some basic guidelines:

  1. Be connected to ASECS Grad Caucus—as a student, or early-career academic, or as an established academic with advice, a grad advisee, have an 18thC related announcement, an ASECS member, or ASECS affiliated society.
  2.  Posts should be a few hundred words and try to end with a discussion point or question.
  3. Topics may include: your research, teaching eighteenth-century studies, research and/or writing processes, getting published, the eighteenth-century today (in the news, pop culture, etc.), and virtually anything else concerning the long eighteenth century.
