OI 2nd Annual Conference

May 31–June 2, 1996

The Institute of Early American History & Culture

Second Floor, Engineering Center
University of Colorado
Boulder, Colorado

Organized in cooperation with the Front Range Early American Consortium


The Institute of Early American History and Culture was established by The College of William and Mary and The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation in 1943 to support “study, research, and publications bearing on American History, approximately to the year 1815.” The Institute publishes the William and Mary Quarterly, books in its field of interest, and a e-newsletter, organizes and supports a variety of conferences, seminars, and colloquia, and annually offers a two-year postdoctoral fellowship. The series of annual conferences inaugurated by the Institute in June 1995 represents another important means of encouraging work in the early American field. Organized exclusively by calls for papers and panels and held in a different region of the country each year, the Institute’s Annual Conference is intended to bring together junior and senior scholars from several disciplines who share a common interest in early American history and culture.

The program committee for the 1996 conference includes Gloria Main (University of Colorado, Boulder), chair; Virginia Anderson (University of Colorado, Boulder), Christine Daniels (Michigan State University), Philip Deloria (University of Colorado, Boulder), Joyce Goodfriend (University of Denver), Ronald Hatzenbuehler (Idaho State University), Ann Kibbey (University of Colorado, Boulder), Kenneth A. Lockridge (University of Montana), Gail Rowe (University of Northern Colorado), Billy Smith (Montana State University), and Peter H. Wood (Duke University).
