Tenth International Congress on the Enlightenment

25-31 July 1999

Session "Electronic Resources and the 18th Century"

The session "Electronic Resources and the 18th Century" has been expanded
and can accommodate two additional papers or demonstrations about
significant "new" electronic resources useful to the study of the 18th
century.  Of particular interest are internet databases that are nearing
completion or that have recently been made available on a non-commercial
basis. Submissions from outside of the U. S. are particularly welcome. 

Proposals, including a brief description of your project, equipment
requirements, and a current resume, should be sent to me at or John C. Greene, Dept. of English, U of Southwestern
Louisiana, POB 44691, Lafayette, LA 70504-4691, as soon as possible, but
not later than 8 September 1998. Acceptances will be sent out (by e-mail)
soon thereafter. 

Please note that the conference organizers have stipulated that session
participants must have officially registered for the conference by 15
September 1998 if they want to have their names included in the first
conference catalog. 

Session "Opera, Enlightenment, & Revolution"

I invite proposals of 200-300 words for 30 minute papers on eighteenth
century opera and its relationship to the Enlightenment and/or the French
Revolution. Possible topics might include the representations of the
barbarian, of sacrifice, of clemency, or of tyranny, and the papers should
of course consider the relationship between text and music. 

Please send proposals, along with a CV, by 3 March 1998 to
