The Early Modern Studies Institute will be hosting a conference on Early American Biographies.
“Presenters’ papers are precirculated among the workshop participants. In each hour-long session devoted to a particular paper, brief respondents’ comments will be followed by thirty minutes of discussion among the participants. Audience members will then be invited to join the conversation.
Registration is limited; requests for registration and access to the workshop papers should be sent to Kelly Crawford (firstname.lastname@example.org).“
