The New England Americanist Collective is a group of young scholars working on American literature, media, and culture.  Founded in 2011, the NEAC brought together graduate students and young faculty from Brown University, Harvard University, and Boston University to discuss in-progress scholarship from its members. Since 2013, it has hosted annual colloquia, bringing faculty from around North America to join in conversation about the new horizons of the field.

This year’s colloquium will take place on June 9-10 at Harvard University!
