Conferences

The SEA hosts and sponsors annual conferences. In odd-numbered years, the Society hosts an open-topic general conference known as the Biennial Conference. In even-numbered years, it sponsors Special Topics conferences and workshops. The SEA also sponsors panels at our affiliated societies: the American Literature Association & the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies. For more information about the SEA’s Upcoming, Recent, and Past Conferences, please “Read More” below. The SEA welcomes applications for seed grants to support biennial topical conferences (usually to take place in the spring or summer of even-numbered years) and workshops (to take place annually, usually in the fall), for more information, please see: SEA_Grants_Topical_Conferences_Workshops
