The event is intended as a celebration the publication of /Digitizing Enlightenment: Digital Humanities and the Transformation of Eighteenth-Century Studies/, with Oxford University Studies in the Enlightenment, and to compensate for the postponement of the Digitizing Enlightenment V conference in Montpellier, France (now rescheduled for 2021) and the cancellation of our book launch event, which would have been held there. Please share this news with others in your networks who share an interest in digital humanities, Enlightenment studies, and/or book history and encourage them to add their own comments or links to their own work to the conversation with the hashtag or to follow along with the hashtag #DigitizingEnlightenment (https://twitter.com/hashtag/digitizingenlightenment?src=hashtag_click). Please treat this as an invitation and opportunity to: - Tell us your opinion about the state of the field (Be generous to your colleagues please!). - Share updates us on the state of an on-going project. - Share new work and get feedback. - Suggest ideas for new collaborations. - Or just post a favorite link or photo of something 18th century related that you think more people should be aware of. If you work on the Enlightenment writ large, tweet with the hashtag #DigitizingEnlightenment (https://twitter.com/hashtag/digitizingenlightenment?src=hashtag_click) and tell us what you are up to or respond to this Tweet (https://twitter.com/MelanieConroy1/status/1287905772131819521?s=20).
