Welcome to the University of Minnesota's
Early American History Workshop

The E.A.H. Workshop is an informal, yet highly productive and active institution. It serves as a forum in which faculty, graduate students, and others present working papers intended for publication or conference presentation. The hour-long discussion group helps authors refine their arguments and hear alternative viewpoints for understanding their topic. Workshop participants represent many disciplines: History, American Studies, Economics, Demography, Literature, Religious Studies, Public Policy, and Women's Studies. Past papers have covered a wide temporal sweep from the colonial period to the American Civil War, and a broad geographical and spatial scope encompassing the histories of Canada, New England, the Middle Atlantic, the Lower South, the West Indies, Latin America, slavery, and native people.
    During the Spring 2009 semester the Workshop will meet twice monthly on Wednesdays from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. in 1229 Heller Hall. Click here to view to view the current calendar, If you are interested in participating please visit the Workshop Guidelines page.
