Conference Review Cosponsored by the Society of Early Americanists and the Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture Washington, DC, and University of Maryland June 25, 2016 The Fourth Early Americanist "Summit" brought together more than 150 scholars to discuss the theme of "Translation and Transmission in the Early Americas." The four-day, multilingual occasion featured three keynote addresses and forty panels led by experts in the fields of anthropology, history, linguistics, and literary studies. The event emerged on the Twitter stratosphere with its very own "hashtag."
