Dear SEA members and Early Americanist Community,
The Executive Committee of the Society of Early Americanists is pleased to announce the election of Sandra Gustafson, Professor of English at the University of Notre Dame, as our next Executive Coordinator.
Sandra is well-known in our field and beyond as the former editor of Early American Literature and as an author of many influential publications, including Imagining Deliberative Democracy in the Early American Republic (Chicago, 2011) and Eloquence is Power: Oratory and Performance in Early America (Chapel Hill and Colonial Williamsburg, 2000).
Sandra will serve a two-year term as Executive Coordinator (2019-21); then as Vice President (2021-23); and finally as President (2023-25). We are excited that our society will be in such good hands in years to come and look forward to working with her to build our organization. Please join me in congratulating Sandra!
