Volume 55 of ASECS’s quarterly journal Eighteenth-Century Studies – edited by the new team of Ramesh Mallipeddi and managing editor Oliver Bedard, both of University of British Columbia, Vancouver – contained 25 articles and 39 reviews. This volume covered an impressive array of diverse topics and methodologies, with particular focus on new technologies and methodological considerations, particularly in regards to research into race and sexuality.
Studies in Eighteenth-Century Culture, Vol. 50, appeared in the summer of 2022 and was the first volume edited by the new editing team David Brewer (Ohio State University), editor, and Crystal Lake (Wright State University). As Brewer and Lake observe in their introduction, the journal serves as ASECS’s “very own journal of the plague year,” and we celebrate the authors in this volume who helped remind us of the vibrant scholarship in our field emerging even amidst a pandemic.

The activities of ANZSECS continue to revolve around our major conference, the David Nichol Smith Seminar. As noted in the 2021 report, the 2017 conference produced a volume of selected papers: “Spaces of Enlightenment: From Domestic Scenes to Global Visions,” edited by Peter Denney and Lisa O'Connell, papers from the Sixteenth David Nichol Smith Seminar, Eighteenth-Century Life (September 2021) vol. 45, no. 3. https://read.dukeupress.edu/eighteenth-century-life/article/45/3/1/174268/Spaces-of-Enlightenment-From-Domestic-Scenes-to A second edited publication, focussing on art, garden, and architectural history, also emerged from the 2017 conference: Making Ideas Visible in the Eighteenth Century, edited by Jennifer Milam and Nicola Parsons (University of Delaware Press, 2022). https://udpress.udel.edu/book-title/making-ideas-visible/ Another special number of Eighteenth-Century Life, containing papers from the 2020 conference ‘Dark Enlightenments’, is under way.

Congrès/Congresses :
The 18th David Nichol Smith Seminar will be held from 7-9 December 2022 at Australian Catholic University, Melbourne campus (Fitzroy, VIC), on the theme ‘Marine Worlds of the Long Eighteenth Century: Practices, Imaginaries, Geographies’. https://dnsxviii2022.org/ The focus is especially on exploring experiences, knowledges and spaces of the sea and the undersea, 1650-1850. We will be open to work on any marine world, though perhaps will emphasise Global South subjects. We are most keen to highlight and interrogate how the 'blue humanities,' and environmental humanities in general, are reshaping the study of eighteenth-century worlds across disciplines. For more details see ANZSECS annual report. The conference was blessed with superb keynote lectures from Prof Sasha Handley (Manchester), Prof Kate Fullagar (Australian Catholic University), Assoc Prof Eugenia Zuroski (McMaster) and the winner of the DNS2020 ECR Keynote competition, Dr Freya Gowrely (Bristol).

Czech Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
Publications :

Most of the papers presented at the conference were elaborated in the light of the discussions and offered for publication in the eponymous journal of our Society. The journal has been given a new website (https://ucl.cas.cz/casopis-cornova), and we are currently working on a new website for the Society itself. Several members of the Society have participated in several conferences and published important papers. Probably the most representative result is a joint monograph on the Habsburgs led by Jiří Hrbek (https://www.hiu.cas.cz/en/books/monographs/panovnicky-majestat-habsburkove-jako-cesti-kralove-v-17-a-18-stoleti).

Congrès/Congresses :
Due to the pandemic, many activities have been cancelled or changed in the last two years; this includes our biennial conference, which was postponed and took place in September 2021. The conference focused on the coexistence of seemingly contradictory intellectual currents in Bohemia in the second half of the 18th century. This was exemplified by Ignaz Cornova (1740-1822), a member of the Jesuit Order, Freemason, poet and historian.

Dutch/Belgian Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies (Werkgroep 18e Eeuw)
Publications :
the Society publishes a Yearbook, bridging the gap between scholarly and non-scholarly audiences. Once a year, during Autumn, the members of the Society receive this (officially Dutch-language) yearbook. The editors of the yearbook are Angelie Sens, Marleen de Vries, Christophe Madelein, Elwin Hofman and Sarah Adams (editorial secretary). Jeanette Kamp will also be joining the editorial team shortly. This year, the yearbook has been published by Amsterdam University Press. The diverse disciplinary backgrounds of the authors provide a rich palette of accessibly written new insights into the literature, culture, institutions, and society of the eighteenth century. The 2021 yearbook was dedicated to the theme of "Love and Lust”, with guest editor Delphine Calle compiling a stimulating dossier on love, passion and eroticism during the Enlightenment. In addition to the thematic dossier, the Yearbook also has a new regular column, 'Spectator', in which you will find short essays on how the eighteenth century manages to inspire the twenty-first. Carl Haarnack, Kornee van der Haven and Elwin Hofman will be the first to write about the Rijksmuseum's slavery exhibition, the topicality of the 1720 Wind Bubble and the Netflix series La Révolution, respectively.  The next issue of our yearbook will come out in October 2022. It will focus on people with disabilities in the (long) 18th century, with Ruben Verwaal (Durham University) as guest editor.
Congrès/Congresses :
On Friday 26 August 2022, the joint annual conference of the Society for Seventeenth-Century and Eighteenth-Century Studies will take place in Leiden. The conference theme will be ‘Emotions in Conflict’, presenting a balanced offer of recent research on the 17th and 18th centuries. This will be the first joint conference of the two Working Groups, and it will explore how people individually or in groups dealt with emotions in early modern times, be it conflicting emotions or emotions in conflict situations. There will be multiple parallel sessions, on themes as diverse as ‘emotions imagined’, ‘emotions on the stage’, to ‘colonial discourse’, ‘emotional regimes’, and ‘emotions in Church life’ as well as ‘digital humanities and ‘satire in Europe’.
 
Prix/Awards :
The Society offers one award to stimulate the study of the eighteenth century, and in particular the participation of junior scholars. Thesis award | As of 2018, the Thesis Prize will no longer be awarded annually, but only once every two years, in odd years As a result, no thesis prize was awarded in 2020. The prize is accompanied by a monetary amount, which has been increased to 500 euros in 2018 (before 250 euros). In addition, the winner has the opportunity to turn their thesis into an article for the yearbook of the Society or the magazine EMLC. The grant of 2022 will be awarded to Dieter Cammaerts (KU Leuven) in October 2022.
 
Activités internet/Web activities :

Website www.18e-eeuw.nl; Facebook ; digital newsletter 4x

Because the webinar series of the previous two years was well attended, the board decided to once again organize a series of monthly webinars on eighteenth-century topics during the fall of 2021 (June-September), with lectures by Brecht Deseure (KBR, VUB), Alice Insley (Tate Britain) en Bob Pierik (Universiteit van Amsterdam en Uppsala University). The theme of this webinar series was ‘The Modern City Imagined’, dealing with (representations of) the city in the long 18th century. The different lectures were hosted and moderated by different board members of the Society. This series, too, was a success: each lecture had approximately 70 participants.

The conference was supposed to be in March 2020 but had to be postponed twice due to the pandemic. The conference had nearly 30 speakers and plenty of participants, both on site and online. The first day’s keynote speaker was Hannah Williams (Queen Mary University, London). Her topic was” Devotional Pleasure: Art and Spiritual Aesthetics in Eighteenth-Century Paris”. The second the keynote speaker was Merit Laine (University of Uppsala) with the topic “Difficult to Imagine? Some Eighteenth-Century Antiquities between Facts and Fiction”. The conference was multidisciplinary and approached aesthetic culture from many different angles, including e.g., poetry, music, style, painting, antiquities, (ancient) objects, literature, urban environment, architecture, gardening, and religious artefacts, as well as concepts of beauty and pleasure. Our speakers came from England, Japan, Sweden, Portugal, and Finland.

French Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
Publications :
La directrice de la Revue Dix-huitième siècle est Sophie Audidière qui a succédé à Jean-Christophe Abramovici à cette fonction. Le n° 53, paru au printemps 2021, s’intitulait « Le peuple en colère », avec un dossier contenant 16 articles ; les Varia dont un sous-dossier consacré à Beccaria ; les Notes de lecture ; et enfin un Grand Entretien avec la Conservatrice générale des arts décoratifs du Musée Carnavalet, à l’occasion de la réouverture du Musée. Plus d'informations sur la revue dans le rapport de la société.
La collection « Dix-huitième Siècle » est désormais dirigée par Hélène Cussac et Sylviane Albertan-Coppola puisque l’un de ses co-responsables et pilier de notre société, Marcel Dorigny, nous a malheureusement quittés en septembre 2021. La collection étoffe régulièrement son catalogue, consacré à des éditions de textes inédits. Dernière publication en date : deux courts romans de Jacques Cazotte jamais réédités présentés et édités par E. Sempère. Le Bulletin dont Nicolas Brucker est désormais directeur de la rédaction est dématérialisé. Cela permet notamment au bulletin d’accueillir des compte rendus des événéments qui se sont tenus dans les mois précédents. Le « Supplément bibliographique » est inséré dans le numéro d’avril du bulletin. Il recense les publications de l’année des membres de la société.  Le bulletin fournit également, chaque printemps, une bibliographie d’agrégation complète qui porte sur le programme de l’année suivante. En 2021 la bibliographie a été établie par Christophe Martin et portait sur le roman monde de Rousseau La Nouvelle Héloïse, au programme de la session 2022 de l’agrégation en France. En 2022, c’est Florence Lotterie qui s’est chargée de donner la bibliographie sur le programme de 2023, La Religieuse de Diderot. Ces bibliographies sont très appréciées des collègues préparateurs au concours.
