Active on the UofT campus for almost 50 years, the Toronto Eighteenth-Century Group (TECG) promotes interdisciplinary knowledge of long eighteenth-century literature and culture by inviting visiting scholars, local faculty, and graduate students to present their research in a collegial environment. Membership is open to faculty, graduate students, and independent scholars from across the GTA. Visitors are always welcome. We hope you will join us!

Events take place in the large seminar room (Room 616)
at the UofT English Department (Jackman Humanities Bldg., 170 St. George Street) at 7:30 p.m. sharp.
