Among the 16 early-American-flavored panels already on the program at this November’s annual meeting in Denver, the Early American Matters Caucus is sponsoring these two:

  1. “The Anatomy of Home: Early American Bodies,” with papers by Melissa Adams-Campbell, Carla Cevasco, Rebecca Rosen and Amanda Stuckey; Cristobal will chair and serve as commentator.
  2. “Colloquy with Elizabeth Maddock Dillon on _New World Drama: The Performative Commons in the Atlantic World, 1648-1849_,” with Cory Capers, Elizabeth Maddock Dillon, Duncan Faherty, Bob Fanuzzi, Dan Hutchins, Peter Reed and Shirley Samuels as panelists and with Dennis Moore as moderator—and with members of the audience as Respondents.

In addition to 16 panel proposals which included “early American,” “eighteenth century” or “nineteenth century” as a keyword, the Program Committee also constructed 13 other early-American-flavored sessions from individual paper proposals that had at least one of those keywords.

WATCH FOR FURTHER WORD about the reception we’re again co-hosting with the Environment and Culture Caucus, again with generous support from the American Antiquarian Society.
