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. During the Spring 2017, Colloquium Series events tackled topics ranging from the paradox of detachment as a vital act of political participation to rural Missouri’s connection to the early-19th century Atlantic world to the real story of “the man behind the cane.”
