Early American Matters Caucus

cooking up a BALLOT, so we can vote on our 2 “Sponsored by. . .” sessions

And yep, each panel on this BALLOT will, just like last year and the year before, be one that’s already accepted! Cooool!

On that very note, here’s a Shout-out to one of our own, Elizabeth Maddock Dillon, one of the co-chairs of last year’s A.S.A. Program.Comm:

CONGRATS on a job well done! Those of us who
were at San Juan know how effectively you and your
co-chairs entertained the notion of having early-
American content on the A.S.A. program;  now,
whether folks were there or not, there’s this follow-
up that’s on view at the front screen of theasa.net,
under the heading “Reflections on the Annual Meeting,
San Juan, Puerto Rico, 2012”:

  This was a tremendously rich, varied, and productive program.  Among the most meaningful of the many conversations enabled at the meeting were those between colleagues from different parts of the world, between Puerto Rican scholars and activists and their colleagues from the US, between scholars in the humanities and in the social sciences, and between early Americanists and their colleagues who work on later periods.  The program committee worked especially hard to raise the profile of early America in the conference and to invigorate the conversations across the temporal spectrum from the seventeenth century to the twenty-first.

Cooool! and Hear hear! and, yeah, if you have a panel to include on the Ballot, Congrats! and please do get word to

  Yrs truly,

—Dennis Moore

p.s. as a reminder, info about our Caucus, including details about our presence at each national A.S.A. conference since 2004 plus a Member List that’s sorely in need of updating, is on view at our low-tech website, earlyamericanmatters.fsu.edu
