Editorial Boards

18thConnect is directed by Emily Friedman (Auburn University), with Laura Mandell (Texas A&M University) serving as an additional acquisitions editor. Contact either Emily (ecf0004 AT auburn.edu) or Laura (mandell AT tamu.edu) if you are interested in contributing.

Two editorial boards peer-review submissions to 18thConnect. Members of the first specialize in eighteenth-century literary studies and theory; members of the second provide technical oversight, ensuring that all participating digital projects conform to best practices.
