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:
Mallory Porch (Chair)
Michelle Lyons-McFarland (Co-Chair)
Bridget Donnelly, Kalin Smith, and Melanie Zynel (Webmaster)
