Society of Early Americanists Seminar Series: Early American Studies Scholarship Beyond The Book
Please join us for the spring SEA Seminar Series: Early American Studies Scholarship Beyond The Book
Friday, April 15, 1-2:30 PM central time, ON ZOOM (REGISTER HERE: https://bit.ly/3w2QqmI )
Join us for a conversation with four scholars whose research has taken them beyond the monograph, scholarly article, and dissertation, to creative scholarship, organizing and activism, and digital exhibits. We’ll consider the various forms early American scholarship might take, what audiences it might engage, and to what ends.
Jeremy Paden, Transylvania U, When Scholarship Leads To Poems
Kimberly Toney, American Antiquarian Society, Indigenous Archives & Digital Exhibits
Jim Casey & Courtney Murray, Penn State U, Douglass Day: Collective Research Methods for Black Women’s Histories.
All are welcome; please feel free to share this information with colleagues and students.
The SEA Seminar Series is a virtual gathering oriented around discussing scholarship and teaching practices related to early American literature and culture. Convening throughout the academic year, the seminar series aims to generate opportunities for sharing conversation and research about early America beyond SEA’s biannual conference. The series especially seeks to reflect and amplify the range of scholarship on early American literature and culture, to create generative, supportive spaces accessible to scholars across a diversity of institutional and geographical locations; and to create opportunities for mentoring and supporting junior faculty and graduate students beyond the biennial conferences.
