"The Rural Believer in the Eighteenth Century" (Sponsored by the Society of Early Americanists) (American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies Annual Meeting, Cleveland, Ohio April 4-7, 2013)
This panel will explore eighteenth-century religious experience and narrative beyond urban centers. We invite papers to examine the impact of the great Awakenings and other "beginnings," revivals, and expansions far away from big tent meetings in urban areas and without the leadership of famous preachers. In what ways did rural life codify, challenge, and change the shape of groups/persons as diverse as: Quakers, Lutherans, Methodists, Shakers, Baptists, Presbyterians, Deists, and Judaism? Papers working in and across various disciplines and languages welcomed. Please email 1 page proposals by September 15, 2012.
