On 14–19 July 2019, the British Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies hosted the ISECS International Congress on the Enlightenment at the University of Edinburgh. Three of our colleagues gave presentations at the bilingual (English and French) conference. Lilla Krász spoke about the cultures and practices of medical knowledge in the Kingdom of Hungary in the eighteenth century; György Kurucz discussed the agricultural study tours of Hungarian intellectuals in early nineteenth-century Western Europe, whereas Tibor Bodnár-Király addressed the questions of scientific constructions and political identities on the example of national characterology in eighteenth-century Hungarian state and geographical descriptions.
