This seminar is a forum for scholarly conversations and works-in-progress on early American history, broadly defined. It seeks both to support scholarship on the Anglo-American colonies and the early United States (pre-Civil War), and to situate these political entities within broader frameworks (e.g. global history, early modern history, the Age of Revolution, hemispheric history, and the Atlantic World). The seminar aims to involve a wide range of historians (including specialists in Native American history, Caribbean history, and Latin American history) in this discussion about early America. Scholars of literature, religion, slavery and African diaspora, Native American studies, anthropology, sociology, and related fields are also encouraged to attend.
