Champlain - St. Lawrence Seminar in Early American Studies

The Champlain-St. Lawrence seminar is very much a joint venture, with two coordinators at two universities, located just an hour from each other but in two different nations. We balance presentations by established scholars with work by promising junior historians. Presenters and participants from both sides of the U.S.-Canadian border, and from a variety of disciplines including Anthropology, Economics, History, Literature, and Political Science. Regular participants include museum professionals and indepdendent scholars as well as university-based academics. The seminar meets at least four times per year, alternating between McGill University and SUNY Plattsburgh. At each meeting, the group spends about two hours discussing a precirculated paper of article length.
