2021-22 MRSEAH Call for Submissions

Launched with the Kinder Institute in 2014, the Missouri Regional Seminar on Early American History (MRSEAH) provides scholars working on topics related to American history before 1900 with an opportunity to share research-in-progress with colleagues from around the Midwest in a constructive and convivial workshop setting. We welcome work on all aspects of American history, broadly defined Missouri-style to extend geographically throughout the Americas and Atlantic World, and chronologically from pre-colonial times forward through the 19th century.

Drawing its core members from faculty, graduate students, and public historians of the greater St. Louis area and Missouri River valley, the MRSEAH meets twice per academic semester, once each in St. Louis and Columbia.

The Kinder Institute is currently accepting submissions from potential presenters at our 2021-22 MRSEAH meetings. Full details are in the call below, but in brief, anyone interested in submitting should send a 500-word abstract of their proposed paper, along with a brief CV, to Thomas Kane, KaneTC@missouri.edu.

Any questions can be directed to MRSEAH co-convener and Kinder Institute Associate Director Jeff Pasley, at PasleyJ@missouri.edu. We will begin reviewing submissions on June 15 and will continue until all four 2021-22 slots are filled.
