Calls for Papers

The OI’s mission is to support, produce, and advance scholarship focused on early American history and culture and an important part of that mission is the production of conferences each year. Each is meant to serve as a forum for a rich variety of scholarship on early America and we encourage scholars across the academic spectrum as well as at all stages of academic career development to propose topics, panels and papers.
