Every year, an international seminar for early career eighteenth-century scholars is sponsored by ISECS.
Organizers may consult the International Seminar for Junior Eighteenth-Century Scholars - Organizer's Handbook (pdf).
Stop press; ISECS is very sad to announce that The Early Career Seminar, planned for May 2020 in Lausanne, has had to be cancelled. We deeply regret this outcome and remain committed to the programme, which will resume in 2021. Anyone seeking further information is asked kindly to contact the organisers: Danièle Tosato-Rigo and Pascal Bastien.
