Biographical / Historical

According to the SEASECS website, the Southeastern American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies is "an interdisciplinary society promoting the interchange of ideas and information on the culture, history, literature, philosophy, politics, music, economics, architecture, art, medicine, and science of the eighteenth-century world." Membership is open to anyone interested in the eighteenth century, but membership is generally drawn from the states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, and Louisiana.

An affiliate of the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies, the regional organization was founded as the result of an organizational meeting in November 1973. The first Annual Meeting of SEASECS was held at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville in April 1975. The Society meets annually in early spring, normally in March, at a location in one of the southeastern states. The Executive Board consists of the President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Journal Editor, Archivist/Historian, Immediate Past President, and Graduate Student Member (non-voting). Six Members At Large serving staggered three-year terms also serve on the Board. Standing committees include the Graduate Student Prize Committee and the Percy Adams Prize Committee, which are in charge of selecting the winners of each of these awards, and the Membership Committee.

The Society publishes a scholarly journal, XVIII: New Perspectives on the Eighteenth Century, as well as a newsletter, The SEASECS Gazette.
