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 life and writings of Charles Brockden Brown (1770-1810) as well as other writers from this period and to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and information among Brown scholars and other interested persons.

The twelfth biennial conference, titled Dissent of the Governed, c18 and c21, was held at the University of Kentucky in Lexington, 3-5 October, 2019.  For more information…
