Welcome to the Charles Brockden Brown Society Website
Registration is now open for the ninth biennial conference in Paris.
Charles Brockden Brown (1771-1810) has earned a general reputation as the early republic's most ambitious and accomplished literary figure. He wrote prolifically in many genres, founded and edited three major magazines, published widely read political pamphlets, and intervened in many debates about the culture and politics of the new nation.
The Charles Brockden Brown Society was founded in 2000 as an international scholarly organization to stimulate interest in the writings of Charles Brockden Brown and his era and to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and information among Brown scholars and other interested persons.
The eighth biennial conference, titled Speculations: Aesthetics, Risk, and Capital in the Circum-Atlantic World, 1790-1830, was held Thurs-Sat April 19-21, 2012, in New York at the CUNY Graduate Center. View the conference program and photo gallery.
The Society will host the ninth biennial conference, titled The Revolutionary Atlantic: Acts of Alienation and Sedition, 1780-1830, Thurs-Sat October 10-12, 2013, at Paris-I, Sorbonne. See the provisional conference program here.
