The Ohio Seminar in Early American History and Culture


The Ohio Seminar in Early American History and Culture, hosted at The Ohio State University in Columbus, provides a forum for scholars examining topics in early American history broadly conceived. Scholars gather to discuss ongoing research in a workshop format, and we welcome all faculty and students with an interest in early American studies.  Presenters from previous years include Mary Kelley, Gordon Wood, Timothy H. Breen, and Mary Beth Norton--visit our archive for a complete list of past seminars.

The papers will be available in PDF format via the local list-serve two weeks prior to each meeting, and a limited number of copies of the papers will be available at the department front desk in 106 Dulles Hall. We will continue our tradition of a "Dutch-treat" dinner following the seminar, open to all, at a restaurant of the presenter's choosing!! Further details will be distributed prior to each seminar.  Anyone with questions regarding these sessions should contact John Brooke.
