Interdisciplinary Working Group on the Early United States

The Interdisciplinary Working Group on the Early United States encourages cross-disciplinary exchange and collaboration among UC Berkeley graduate students, visiting scholars, and faculty working on the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century US. In bringing together scholars from History, English, Comparative Literature, Art History, Philosophy, and Political Science, inter alia, the group hopes to expand members’ understanding of the development of the US beyond the comfortable confines of each member’s discipline. By gathering scholars who apply an array of disciplinary approaches and preoccupations to a common time and place, the group intends to challenge conventions, expand fields of inquiry, and provide a space for future collaboration across these fields on topics in the early US.
