(image source: ISECS2015)

The 14th edition of the bilingual quadrennial International Conference for Eighteenth Century Studies (ISECS) will take place at the Erasmus University Rotterdam (Netherlands). This interdisciplinary mass gathering unites historians, linguists, philosophers, musicologists, art historians and lawyers from across the globe.

The organisers distributed an 80 page-program and the abstracts of all papers listed per day. The following panels, keynotes and round tables are of potential interest to legal historians (in view of the sheer size of the event, it is almost impossible to be exhaustive):
