Welcome to the Charles Brockden Brown Society Website

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 tenth biennial conference, titled Recording Nature in the Early Atlantic World, 1750-1830, will be held Thurs-Sat October 8-10, 2015, in Ybor City, Tampa, FL. Individual papers and panel proposals must be received no later than March 31, 2015. View the call for papers.
