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:
- Kristin Distel (Incoming Chair)
- Michelle Lyons-McFarland (Outgoing Chair)
- Incoming co-chair to be determined and announced April 2018
