Welcome to C19: The Society of Nineteenth-Century Americanists
C19: The Society of Nineteenth-Century Americanists, is the first academic organization dedicated to nineteenth-century American literary studies. The fourth biennial conference of C19, will take place at Penn State University March 17-20, 2016.
In 2013, C19 launched J19: The Journal of Nineteenth-Century Americanists, co-edited by Chris Castiglia and Dana Nelson and published twice annually by the University of Pennsylvania Press. J19 provides a forum for disseminating, debating, and implementing methodologies for the intra- and inter-disciplinary study of the long American nineteenth century (1789–1914). The C19 listserv continues to serve as a lively forum for scholarly exchange.
This year we are initiating the C19 Circuit, short regional events and workshops — in the spirit of the nineteenth-century lyceum circuit — focused on bringing together students, teachers, and scholars to discuss topics related to nineteenth-century America. C19 Cluster Groups enable those with special interests to develop institutional and intellectual connections.
