DNS2020 will showcase cutting-edge research in eighteenth-century studies, focused on the theme of ‘dark enlightenments’—the dark, shadowy aspects of enlightenment processes of the eighteenth century. Unanticipated changes following the spread of COVID-19 around the globe have resulted in this conference being held entirely online, as a month-long series of events, to enable maximum participation among our community.
Keynote speakers will present their papers to a live online audience, while delegates have been given the opportunity to present pre-recorded papers,which will be available over the duration of the conference for viewing, questions, and discussion. Additional live events are to be held, including a postgraduate/ECR workshop and the ANZSECS general meeting. The conference will also include a postgraduate best paper prize and a postgraduate mentoring program.

A full program, with access to all events and presentations, will be made available to all registered attendees at the opening of the conference. Details for how to register can be found here.
