The Center for Eighteenth-Century Studies at Indiana University announces the eighth Bloomington Eighteenth-Century Workshop, to be held on May 13-15, 2009. Our topic for 2009 is “Mixed Media, Mixed Messages”. In declaring an eighteenth-century “media revolution” most scholarship has focused on the circulation of new printed forms and the emergence of a public sphere. In this workshop we would like to go beyond well-established narratives to consider “the media revolution” – if there was one in the eighteenth century – in a wider sense. We are especially interested in relationships between media, their differences, limits, and cultural, social, or political ramifications. We will cover most expenses of scholars chosen to present their work: accommodations, travel (up to a certain limit), and most meals. Please send a two-page description of the proposed paper and current CV by Thursday, January 8, 2009. For more information, see our website or email Dror Wahrman at email@example.com.
