C19: The Society of Nineteenth-Century Americanists, announces a 2015 Membership Drive


This is an important year for C19. Since its founding in 2009, we have hosted three successful conferences at Penn State (May 2010) and at UC Berkeley (April 2012).  Its third conference was held March 13-16, 2014, at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. In Spring 2016, the conference will return to State College, PA. The C19 listserv was launched and continues to grow, serving as a lively forum for scholarly exchange.  The community of C19 members has been the driving force behind the first phase of the organization’s development.


In 2013, C19 launched its official journal, 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 welcomes interdisciplinary work representing the most innovative research on and analysis of the “long nineteenth century” (1789-1914). The journal will include features such as “state of the field” polemics, reproductions of new and significant archival materials, roundtables, and  special issues on topics of general interest to nineteenth-century Americanists.


To support J19 and the organization as a whole, we ask now that you join or renew your membership in C19. As a member, you will:


  • Receive the new journal, J19 (both hard copy and on-line)
  • Vote in C19 leadership elections and matters of concern to the organization
  • Learn about the upcoming conference (conference registration will be separate)
  • Help to strengthen and shape C19 as a vibrant, interdisciplinary, diverse organization representing many approaches to nineteenth-century scholarship


Membership is now administered by University of Pennsylvania Press at the following rates:

Students, part-time faculty, independent scholars, and emeriti: $35

Full-time faculty: $65

Institution: $85


Membership is organized by calendar year. A new or renewal membership will run from January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2015.

Please note that while it is possible to subscribe only to the journal and not join C19, we hope that you will support the organization as a whole. For more information about membership and subscription rates, and to join or renew, please click the link below:
