Welcome to ECS at U of S

Eighteenth-Century Studies at the University of Saskatchewan (Research Unit)

After a successful Canadian Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies (CSECS) conference here in 1994, Eighteenth-Century Studies at the University of Saskatchewan (ECS at U of S) was formed in summer 1995, becoming a Research Unit in autumn 1996. Eleven faculty members from four departments (English, Languages & Linguistics, History, and Political Studies) currently make up the steering committee. From the beginning, the group has worked to encourage interdisciplinary practice among eighteenth-century specialists and graduate students on campus.

To accomplish this, members of ECS at U of S have developed a variety of programs:
