We provide forums for a rich variety of scholarship on early America.
The OI’s annual June conference is a major meeting for scholars of early America. The content of each meeting is handled by a program committee charged with privileging new ideas and interpretations over well-worn topics. Junior as well as senior scholars present their work and care is taken to keep the meeting and accommodations affordable for graduate students.
Smaller conferences usually scheduled each fall and held inside and outside of the United States all have distinct topical foci. These events are developed by scholars in the field and offer opportunities for the OI to partner with other organizations.
