Subject: Conference Seminar Announcement and Invitation

KEVIN L. COPE wishes to invite proposals for a seminar newly added to the
program for the 1991 SCSECS (South Central Society for Eighteenth-Century
Studies) convention, scheduled for College Station, Texas, next spring.
Entitled "PRAISE X: PANEGYRIC, DEDICATION, AND COMMEMORATION AS
LITERARY MODES, ARTISTIC FORMS, AND PHILOSOPHICAL POSSIBILITIES," the
seminar will explore any and all acts of approbation, from the most
constructive to the most sycophantic, from pious veneration of authority
to impudent grubbing after money, and from straightforward panegyrical
verse to marginal forms of applause (for example, Elsum's or
Shaftesbury's solitary conversations with approved painting and
sculptures). With a mode like panegyric, the sky's the limit!

Send proposals to:

Prof. Kevin L. Cope
Department of English
Louisiana State University
Baton Rouge, Louisiana
