Colloquium Series

A first cousin of the Missouri Regional Seminar on Early American History and Shawnee Trail Regional Conference, our Colloquium Series provides scholars of American political thought, history, and institutions from Missouri and neighboring states with the opportunity to share and discuss their current research with faculty members and graduate students from across all disciplines at the university. Most recently, Colloquium Series events tackled topics ranging from contemporary debates about gerrymandering, to a revised history of constituent instructions, to black women and the struggle for economic justice in mid-20th century St. Louis.
