Have I forgotten anyone? Planning to come? Let us know your plans. Iâ€™d especially love to hear from other 18th century bloggers to see if we can manage a rare face to face meeting. Iâ€™ll be in town Friday afternoon, staying through Sunday.

To which I respond in comments:
Thanks for this, David! I was just checking in to see what might have been posted on the conference.
Iâ€™d very much like to be part of a â€œmeetupâ€ of eighteenth-century bloggers. I arrive on Thursday just in time for my first time slot, and then Iâ€™ll stay through Saturday late afternoon (or maybe Sunday early morningâ€¦ Iâ€™m driving).
Iâ€™m on the schedule in a couple of time slots:
George H. Williams, â€œâ€˜Sex and the Cityâ€™ in the Eighteenth Century,â€ â€œThe Power of Wow in Teaching the Eighteenth Century Nowâ€ (Roundtable), Thursday 2:30-4:00
George H. Williams, â€œSamuel Bradburn, E. P. Thompson, and Methodist Abolitionism, â€ â€œSlavery and Protestantism in the Transatlantic Eighteenth Century,â€ Thursday 4:15-5:45
