Warmest wishes for a merry holiday season and a new year of joy in a world of peace.

I write to remind you of the approaching deadline for SHEAR 2021's hybrid conference.

Hybrid Conference: Philadelphia and Online

July 15–18, 2021

Opportunity Knocks (M.A. Edition)

SHEAR Conference News

Dear SHEAR Colleagues, 

As Co-Editor of the Journal of the Early Republic one of the arrangements I have with SHEAR is the opportunity to provide you information about the M.A. program at Rutgers-Camden in case it makes sense for students of yours to apply.  Our M.A. annually provides several fellowships that cover full tuition and a stipend for the entirety of the degree for full-time students as well as partial fellowships, and every admitted student receives some form of funding. 

Welcome SHEAR President Amy Greenberg

SHEAR Conference News

SHEAR is delighted to welcome its new president, Amy S. Greenberg, George Winfree Professor of American History and Women's Studies, Penn State University.  

Had the 2020 SHEAR conference, scheduled for July 16-19 in Philadelphia, not been canceled due to the pandemic, President Doug Egerton would have stepped down on Saturday evening and President Greenberg would have assumed office. Unfortunately, we were unable to celebrate that moment of transition in our typical SHEAR fashion. So, congratulations President Greenberg!

SHEAR Virtual Plenary

SHEAR Conference News

As you all know, due to the pandemic we were forced to postpone our July 2020 meeting until the summer of 2021. Let me again emphasize, however, that the conference and the wonderful panels crafted by program co-chairs Nancy Isenberg and John Belohlavek and their superb committee have not been cancelled but merely delayed for twelve months, and the conference will still be held in Philadelphia.
