Eighteenth-Century Talks in NYC

The Eighteenth-Century Interdisciplinary Group welcomes you to our speaker series this semester. We have three events planned, all of which will take place on the second Fridays of the month at the Graduate Center (365 Fifth Ave) in room 5414. For those who have been with us before, please notice that this is a different venue from our usual spot in the Eighteenth-Century Reading Room, which has, unfortunately, been closed. This semester, we will be meeting in a room on the fifth floor that has windows and a bit more space to move around in.

If you plan to attend any of our meetings this semester, please let me know so I can know how much food and drink to provide. (If you don’t have a CUNY ID, you will need to sign in at the front desk, but they don’t need a list of your names.) The Eighteenth-Century Interdisciplinary Group hosts a wide range of talks on eighteenth-century subjects, each followed by lively conversation.

Our first meeting will be on Friday, September 12 at 2 pm in room 5414. JoEllen DeLucia of John Jay College of Criminal Justice, CUNY will be presenting “The Celtic Paratext of Radcliffe’s Gothic: The Mysteries of Udolpho and Scottish Enlightenment Historiography.”

Please also save the dates for talks by Kathleen Urda of Bronx Community College, CUNY (Nov. 14th at 2pm) and James Horowitz of Yale University (Dec. 12th at 2pm).
