H-OIEAHC is sponsored by the Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture, Williamsburg, Virginia. Moderator of H-OIEAHC is John Saillant, Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, Michigan.
The Institute’s mission is to support, produce, and advance scholarship focused on early American history and culture. An important part of that mission is the sponsorship of conferences. Each is meant to serve as a forum for the rich variety of scholarship on early America. We invite scholars of early American history and culture from any institution to propose topics and organizing themes for one of two yearly conferences:
the Annual Conference (June), which highlights work from junior as well as senior scholars
a topically focused conference, usually held in October
The Center for Historic American Visual Culture (CHAViC) at the American Antiquarian Society encourages and facilitates the use and understanding of popular images by scholars in a variety of disciplines including American studies, history, art and architectural history, English, gender studies, literature, religion, theatre, and environmental studies. The 2014 Summer Seminar, The Art of Science and Technology, 1750-1900, will be held Sunday July 13 through Thursday July 17 at the American Antiquarian Society’s library in Worcester, MA.
