The Early American Colloquium aims to revisit non-canonical texts of American literature from the colonial period through the 19th century. The colloquium acts as both a reading group and a platform for guest speakers in the field. Interests of the group include texts by female, Native American, and other marginalized writers whose works are less frequently studies. The Colloquium also focuses on popular fiction and ephemeral texts (such as pamphlets, periodicals, tracts) in order to better understand the daily reading habits of early Americans.
