Early American Matters Caucus

joint reception this October in Toronto

Again this year, the Early American Matters Caucus and the Environment and Culture Caucus are staging a joint reception at the big A.S.A. conference: Friday, October 9, 4:30-6:30 at Epicure (502 W. Queen St. W, http://www.theepicure.ca). Again this year, Paul Erickson has arranged for the American Antiquarian Society to be a major underwriter—and this year our pals in the E+C Caucus are getting York University’s Faculty of EnvironmentalStudies to co-sponsor this event! Many thanks to Sari Altschuler, now of Emory U., who has helped figure out the logistics, in her role as our caucus’s co-choreographer.  Looking forward!

“Colloquy with Ed Baptist on THE HALF HAS NEVER BEEN TOLD”
  and
“Troubling Region: The Problem of Geography in Teaching ‘the Early Americas’”

  Looking forward!
