The committee for the 2015 Conference of the Society for U.S. Intellectual History–Andrew Hartman (chair), Michael Kimmage, Claire Rydell, and Jonathan Wilson–is pleased to announce that the seventh annual S-USIH Conference will be held October 15-18, 2015 at the Hamilton Crowne Plaza hotel in downtown Washington, D.C.
The keynote for the 2015 S-USIH Conference will be Corey Robin, a professor of political science at Brooklyn College and the CUNY Graduate Center, and author of Fear: The History of a Political Idea, and The Reactionary Mind: Conservatism from Edmund Burke to Sarah Palin.
We are in the midst of planning a conference theme and three exciting plenary sessions. A CFP and more details will be forthcoming after the 2014 S-USIH Conference in Indianapolis. In the meantime, we would like to mention one feature in the works for the 2015 conference: our friends at The Junto: A Group Blog on Early American History will sponsor two sessions.
Mark your calendars. We look forward to seeing you all in D.C.!
