The Omohundro Institute and the University of Southern California-Huntington Library Early Modern Studies Institute are pleased to announce the fourteenth in a series of William and Mary Quarterly-EMSI workshops designed to identify and encourage new trends in understanding the history and culture of early North America and its wider world.

The WMQ-EMSI Workshop Series is designed to identify and encourage new trends in our understanding of the history and culture of early North America. It fosters intellectual exchange among scholars working on thematically related topics that may be chronologically, geographically, or methodologically diverse. This year, we will convene a group of archaeologists and historians for a conversation about aiming for richer, more inclusive narratives in both disciplines, ones that are not constrained by artificially truncated chronologies of early America. The convener of this year’s workshop is Robin Beck of the University of Michigan’s Department of Anthropology and Museum of Anthropological Archaeology.
