Journal Current volume: 45 Frequency: Three issues annually

Academic Editor(s): Cedric D. Reverand II, Michael Edson

Committed to interdisciplinary exchange, Eighteenth-Century Life addresses all aspects of European and world culture during the long eighteenth century. The most wide-ranging journal of eighteenth-century studies, it also encourages diverse methodologies—from close reading to cultural studies—and it always welcomes suggestions for review essays.

Among Eighteenth-Century Life’s noteworthy regular features are its film forums, its review essays, its book-length special issues, and the longest and most eclectic lists of books received of any journal in the field.

Eighteenth-Century Life received the 2019 Voyager Award from the Council of Editors of Learned Journals.
