XIIth David Nichol Smith Conference 20-22 July 2004: Canberra; Australia
I am pleased to announce the first call for panel suggestions and papers for the 12th David Nichol Smith Conference.
Provisional closing dates for offers will be 16 January 2003, although panel suggestions may be accepted before this date.
The conference will again be held at the National Library of Australia, in Canberra, 20-22 July 2004 - with generous support from the Library, and the Humanities Research Centre and Centre for Cross-Cultural Research at the Australian National University.
There will be three major themes for the conference. However, the program will be designed with a view to accommodating as far as possible the rich diversity of eighteenth-century scholarship, especially in Australia and New Zealand.
The major conference themes for 2004 will be:
Experience, compassion, mystery: the history making of Greg Dening.
In 2004 the DNS will celebrate and reflect on the contribution of Greg Dening to the history of Oceania in the long eighteenth-century. Panels and papers dealing with aspects of Dening's history making are especially welcome.
New directions in eighteenth-century studies. The past five years has seen remarkable innovations in various areas of Eighteenth-Century studies which we are keen to see discussed and debated at the David Nichol Smith Conference.
The World of the Eighteenth Century and the Web.
The past five years has seen the evolution of Eighteenth-Century Studies in the Digital Environment. It is hoped that one strand of the conference will be devoted to the intellectual, conceptual and technical challenges of working with networked communication technologies.
Suggestions for panels and papers and all other inquiries should be directed (preferably) by email to the email below.
