Early American Matters Caucus

“Early America, Asia, and the Pacific”

Dear colleagues,

   Thanks to everyone in our Caucus who weighed in on the question of which session we want this year’s A.S.A. Program.Comm to identify as “Sponsored by the Early American Matters Caucus.”  Practically everyone who voted said let’s go with “EARLY AMERICA, ASIA, AND THE PACIFIC,” and so I say Hear, Hear! and behold:

Chair: Martha Rojas (English, University of Rhode Island)

“A Slave Woman’s Transatlantic Journey,”
Tatiana Seijas (History, Miami University)

“What’s Chinese About China in Revolutionary America?
Benjamin Franklin’s Fine and Noble China Vase,”
Jim Egan (English, Brown University)

“Visions of Empire in the Pacific World: Russia’s Colonial Stages
in North America,”
Gwenn A. Miller (History, The College of the Holy Cross)

“Trade and Time in Eighteenth-Century Pacific Travel Writing,”
Michelle Burnham (English, Santa Clara University)

To peruse an abstract describing this session, visit our website (either here within the depths of theasa.net or at earlyamericanmatters.fsu.edu), and click on that LOOKING AHEAD link, up top.  Those Archives links, also up top, lead to details on the range of sessions our Caucus has sponsored at the past several A.S.A.s.

   As for this November’s, remember that our Caucus and the Environment+Culture Caucus will, together, stage a RECEPTION.  On that note,



p.s. thanks, as ever, to my colleagues on the Working.Comm that grew out of our Caucus’s business meeting, last October at Albuquerque:
  Paul Erickson, American Antiquarian Society
  Sally Promey, Yale University
  Sarah Rivett, Washington University
  Karen Salt, Purdue University
