About the GSC

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:

  • April Fuller (Chair)
  • Megan Cole (Co-Chair)

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, 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. Posts may also include an announcement related to eighteenth-century scholarship.
  4. 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.
  5. If you would like us to announce your own good news–publications, successful dissertation defenses, or other achievements–we are happy to celebrate your success in a blog announcement!
