The American Society for
Eighteenth-Century Studies is an interdisciplinary group dedicated to
the advancement of
scholarship in all aspects of the
period . . . from the later seventeenth through the early nineteenth century.
Established in 1969, the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
advances study and research in the history of a time that has profoundly
influenced our world. ASECS is a pioneer in interdisciplinary investigation,
and it therefore welcomes as members those working in all areas of scholarly
inquiry pertinent to eighteenth-century studies.

Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon (In honor of Adrianne Wadewitz)
Santa Anita A
Wednesday, March 18
An 18th-centuryist, Wadewitz was also an innovator in digital humanities. In particular, she worked tirelessly to increase the representation of women and minorities on Wikipedia--an online resource which historically has been edited primarily by men. Concerned with content, she wanted to ensure that a diversity of stories and voices were being recognized. During our extended session,we will thus add new entries and expand incomplete ("stub") entries for important literary, historical, artistic, and scientific figures from our period. In essence, we hope to contribute to an Encyclopédie project for the 21st century, following Diderot's aim: "to change the way people think."
