Cambridge History of America and the World

May 2018 International Conference at the Kinder Institute

On May 17-19, 2018, the Kinder Institute will host over 30 scholars of American political and transnational history for a two-day conference to workshop chapters-in-progress for the nineteenth-century volume of Cambridge University Press’ four-volume Cambridge History of America and the World (the 19th-century volume will be co-edited by Kinder Institute Chair Jay Sexton and his longtime collaborator, University of Illinois Professor of History Kristin Hoganson). The new collection, which will redefine study of the complex and varied relations between the United States and foreign nations over the entire course of U.S. history, including the colonial era, is revolutionary in its ambition, and the May 2018 conference in Columbia is likewise unprecedented in scope, providing contributors with an entirely unique opportunity to present their research to and receive feedback from panels of colleagues from around the globe.

A full schedule of events associated with the conference, including public talks by some of the gathering’s many distinguished participants, will be posted to the Kinder Institute website once final details fall into place.
