It was a truly open market at the International Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies (ISECS) congress in Rotterdam, 27-31 July 2015. On and around a thousand scholars from all over the world (delegates from 53 countries!) enjoyed pleasant Dutch summer weather at the recently renovated Erasmus University Campus. They attended keynote lectures, participated in round-table discussions, twittered enthusiastically (#ISECS2015), and engaged in social events, such as cultural excursions and music performances.
