The Eighteenth Century Studies group at Stirling was founded in 2017. We are an interdisciplinary community of Eighteenth Century scholars with diverse interests across the Long Eighteenth Century. Our aim is to promote research, publication and education in eighteenth-century studies, especially across the disciplinary boundaries of Literature and History.
We run an annual Writing Retreat, and monthly meetings of the Eighteenth-Century Writing Group, at which members of the group and external speakers present their work in progress. We are a supportive intellectual community, and we particularly welcome PhD applications in a variety of different areas of Eighteenth-Century Studies.
