We are an interdisciplinary Association interested in exploring all aspects of the long nineteenth century, from science to music, from architecture to religion, from movement to literatures—and beyond. We hope you will peruse these pages as a volume inviting you to join us at our annual spring meeting, and we ask you to join our community of those with nineteenth century interests.

We are excited to announce our keynote speaker for Charleston 2017.  Maurie D. McInnis studies the history of art, architecture, and material culture of the colonial and antebellum South, and her research has frequently focused on Charleston subjects. Her publications include Slaves Waiting for Sale: Abolitionist Art and the American Slave Trade (2011), which was awarded the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Charles C. Eldredge Prize and the Library of Virginia Literary Award for Non-Fiction; and The Politics of Taste in Antebellum Charleston (2005), which received awards from the Society of Architectural Historians and the Association for the Preservation of Artifacts and Landscapes.  McInnis’s work has frequently intersected with public history, and she has served on advisory committees addressing interpretations of slavery at both Monticello and Mount Vernon.  Recently appointed executive vice president and provost of The University of Texas at Austin, McInnis previously served as professor of art history and vice provost for academic affairs at the University of Virginia.  Her most recent research examines equestrian monuments and power.  As we consider the contested terrain of “Memory and Commemoration” we look forward to welcoming Dr. McInnis to our Charleston conference.
