As part of our ongoing commitment to excellence in early American scholarship, the Omohundro Institute offers a variety of lectures and learning opportunities at no charge. These include lectures designed for both scholarly and non-scholarly audiences, such as the Council, Historians at Work, and William and Mary Quarterly Prize lectures, and talks given with a primarily academic audience in mind, such as the Vast Early America lecture series. All are welcome at all events.
Our current lectures include:
- Author Series – Offered as part of the OI’s commitment to introducing its authors and their work in Early American scholarship directly to public audiences.
- Council Lecture – Reflects the Omohundro Institute’s ongoing commitment to excellence in early American scholarship. It is meant for both scholarly and non-scholarly audiences.
- Historians at Work – Offered as part of the OI’s commitment to demonstrating the methods used by historians and the relationship of these practices to scholarly excellence.
- William and Mary Quarterly Prize Lecture – Delivered by an author of an award-winning article published in the WMQ.
- Vast Early America Lecture – Features an OI author whose work has strong cross-disciplinary appeal to scholars of history, literature, gender and sexuality, race and identity, and cultural studies.
