Have I forgotten anyone? Planning to come? Let us know your plans. I’d especially love to hear from other 18th century bloggers to see if we can manage a rare face to face meeting. I’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.
I’d very much like to be part of a “meetup” of eighteenth-century bloggers. I arrive on Thursday just in time for my first time slot, and then I’ll stay through Saturday late afternoon (or maybe Sunday early morning… I’m driving).
I’m on the schedule in a couple of time slots:
George H. Williams, “‘Sex and the City’ in the Eighteenth Century,” “The Power of Wow in Teaching the Eighteenth Century Now” (Roundtable), Thursday 2:30-4:00
George H. Williams, “Samuel Bradburn, E. P. Thompson, and Methodist Abolitionism, ” “Slavery and Protestantism in the Transatlantic Eighteenth Century,” Thursday 4:15-5:45
