“Early American Carnality,”
10 a.m. Friday, Nov. 7, in room Beaudry A

“Colloquy with Kathleen Donegan
on _Seasons of Misery,”
12 noon Friday, Nov. 7, also in room Beaudry A

—and here’re the the three other early-American-flavored sessions on that ballot:

“Roundtable: The Transoceanic Pacific
in the Age of Sail,”
2:00 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 6, also in room Beaudry A

“Roundtable: Pleasures of the Archive,”
2:00 p.m. Friday, Nov, 7, also in room Beaudry A

“Origins of Biopolitics in the Americas,”
10 a.m. Sunday, Nov, 9, also in room Beaudry A

Yep, the command module scheduled all 5 in the same room—and yep, that Friday there’ll be three in a row.

Meanwhile, please be sure to put our Business Meeting on your calendar—10:00 a.m. Thursday, November 6, in room Los Cerritos—and please watch for details about the Reception!

  Looking forward,
