The Society of Early Americanists 11th Biennial Conference, hosted by The University of Oregon, Eugene, will take place February 27th – March 2nd, 2019. The Eugene biennial will be the first for the SEA to be held on the West Coast. It will highlight how the Pacific Rim and the West are significant for Early American Studies, beyond the U.S. expansionist narratives of Lewis and Clark.

Keynote speakers will include:

— Prof. Michelle Burnham, Santa Clara University, “The Revolutionary Pacific: Transoceanic American Writing and the Calculus
of Risk”

— Prof. Melinda Marie Jetté, author of At the Hearth of the Crossed Races: A French-Indian Community in Nineteenth-Century Oregon, 1812-1859

Panel proposals will be accepted beginning May 1, 2018, please stay tuned for more details.
