Professor of history hosts discussion for the Omohundro Institute

Dr. Denise Bossy, associate professor of history, is co-hosting an 8-week virtual “coffeehouse” discussion on “Mobility, Emplacement, and Homelands” in May and June for the Omohundro Institute, the leading center for the study of early America. 

This group will consider different forms of movement and settlement across the spaces of vast early America and its members are advanced graduate students through senior scholars from the U.S. and U.K. working on Indigenous, African or colonial settler communities. Bossy and her co-host Max Edelson, professor and associate chair for the department of history at the University of Virginia, hope to foster cross-disciplinary dialogues. Through readings and chats, the group will explore different constructs and methodologies while also providing a space for scholars to think together and share their own work.

The Omohundro Institute of Early American History & Culture, an independent research organization sponsored by William & Mary, supports scholars and scholarship focused on the expansive field of early American history. To learn more about the OI Coffeehouse tables, visit the OI Events website.
