Welcome! This is the homepage of the Pittsburgh Eighteenth Century Consortium, a group of scholars in the Pittsburgh community. As students and professors at Dusquesne University, Carnegie Mellon University, and University of Pittsburgh, our interests are wide and varied. For example, papers presented by members of the Consortium at ASECS 2011 in Vancouver included these topics:

  • Gender and Restoration celebrity
  • Queer performativity in the eighteenth century
  • Changes in costume and fashion
  • Pedagogical approaches to teaching eighteenth-century texts
  • Print culture

As our community continues to grow, we invite informal discussions and debate among our scholars. You can email us at pittsburgh18thcc@gmail.com with any questions or suggestions.
