47TH ANNUAL MEETING OF SEASECS
FEBRUARY 25-27, 2021
SEASECS will hold its 47th meeting online during February 25-27, 2021. Given the logistical hurdles and financial constraints facing faculty and graduate students in the coming year, we envision the 2021 conference as a low-cost, user-friendly venue that will allow faculty, graduate students, and independent scholars to present their scholarship during a year of limited opportunities.
The theme for the 2021 conference is “‘The World Turned Upside Down’: The Self/Interiority, (Social) Distancing, and Mobility in the Long Eighteenth Century.”
PANEL PROPOSALS AND INDIVIDUAL ABSTRACTS: While SEASECS welcomes both fully-formed panels and individual abstracts that relate to the conference theme, it will also consider other panels and papers that deal with other aspects of the eighteenth century. To submit a panel or individual proposal, please send abstracts of no more than 300 words to Dr. Bryan Rindfleisch (firstname.lastname@example.org). The deadline for panel proposals is October 31, 2020, and the deadline for individual abstracts is December 1, 2020. In addition, applicants may propose an idea for a panel topic that can be circulated to interested parties. This type of proposal requires a panel title, a short description, and the panel organizer's name. The deadline for such proposals is October 31, 2020.
ANNIBEL JENKINS PRIZE IN PERFORMANCE AND THEATER STUDIES: SEASECS awards this biennial prize of $500 for the best article in performance and theater studies published in a scholarly journal, annual, or collection. The Jenkins Prize will be awarded at the 2021 SEASECS conference. Eligible publications for this award must have been published between September 1, 2018 and August 31, 2020. Authors must be members of SEASECS at the time of submission. Articles may be submitted by the author or by another member.
