The British Group of Early American Historians will hold its annual conference at the University of Sheffield, 3-6 September, 2015. The program features thirty speakers from across the UK, Europe, North America, and Australia addressing topics in early American history before 1820. Trevor Burnard, University of Melbourne, will deliver a lively keynote, “Planters, Fear, and Slavery in the Coming of the American Revolution” and there will be a “book club” session considering Andrew Beaumont’s, Colonial America and the Earl of Halifax, 1748–1761 (OUP, 2015).
Colleagues and students are all welcome. There is no need to register, unless you want to share in the delights of university catering and the conference dinner on Saturday night – in which case see the uni “shop”.
