The Western Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies (WSECS) will hold its 2019 conference at Arizona State University's Tempe campus on the theme, "The Global Eighteenth Century."

The conference will feature a plenary panel of scholars debating the question, "What is a 'global eighteenth century'?" Felicity Nussbaum (English, UCLA), Satoko Shimazaki (East Asian Languages and Cultures, USC), Regulus Allen (English, California Polytechnic State University), and Claudia Brown (Art History, ASU) have been confirmed as plenary panelists.

Scholars from all disciplines on all aspects of eighteenth-century culture will present their work.

ASU sponsors include the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and its humanities units: the Department of English, the School of International Letters and Cultures, the School of Historical, Philosophical, and Religious Studies, and the Institute for Humanities Research; as well as the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts and the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies.
