“The purpose of the International Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies is to promote the growth, development and coordination of studies and research relating to the eighteenth century in all aspects of its cultural heritage (historical, philosophical, ideological, religious, linguistic, literary, scientific, artistic, juridical) in all countries, without exception; the Society is non-profit-making and non-political.
Its function in particular is to promote communication and the circulation of information between national societies for eighteenth-century studies.
Its aim is:
to foster exchanges, contacts and meetings between eighteenth-century specialists of all countries;
to give moral support to cultural events (conferences, exhibitions, etc...) related to the eighteenth century, or commemorating its great figures and its accomplishments;
to promote the creation of national societies in countries where none are in existence.
