October 10

Eighteenth-Century Scottish Studies Society Conference 2018

Panel: “Maria Edgeworth and Scottish Enlightenment Networks”

Maria Edgeworth’s involvement with Scottish Enlightenment thinking has long been recognized, but much yet remains to be discovered about the extent, complexity and implications of her engagement with the ideas of Adam Smith, David Hume, William Hunter, Hugh Blair, Dugald Stewart and other philosophers, scientists and writers from that era. For a panel on “Maria Edgeworth and Scottish Enlightenment Networks” to be proposed for the 2018 conference of the ECSSS, papers are invited on any strands of Scottish Enlightenment thinking woven into Edgeworth’s works, life and reputation.

While papers might consider the place of Scottish Enlightenment concepts in Edgeworth’s writing, they might also consider Edgeworth’s place in conceptualizations of the Scottish, Irish or other Enlightenments and how association with Enlightenment has affected her reception—or should affect it in the future.  Also welcome are papers that consider how Scottish Enlightenment networks enmesh the activities of Richard Lovell Edgeworth and the administration of Edgeworthstown.

Please send abstracts of 300 words, along with a one-page cv, by 10 October 2017 to Regina Hewitt (U of South Florida)  reghew@hotmail.com  or hwt87@earthlink.net

ECSSS (the Eighteenth-Century Scottish Studies Society) will meet at the University of Glasgow from 17 to 21 July 2018.  The conference theme is “Networks of Enlightenment.” More information can be found at http://tinyurl.com/y9nyx5vq Please note that the deadline for abstracts for the proposed Edgeworth panel is earlier than the deadline in the main CFP for the conference in order to allow time for the panel to be composed by that final submission deadline and for extra abstracts to be forwarded to the organizers and considered for other sessions.
