CECS staff members attend seminar in Brisbane

In December 2017, CECS staff members Jim Watt and Alison O’Byrne attended the David Nichol Smith Seminar in Eighteenth-Century Studies in Brisbane, Australia on the theme Natures and Spaces of Enlightenment.  The event is organized every three years by the Australia and New Zealand Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies, and offered a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with former CECS students who are now based around the globe.
