Abstract

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." Conference attendees could share their thoughts before, during, and after the event, such as Marie Taylor's optimistic reaction, "Feeling energized to write after a great conference #UMDColonialTranslation" and Alejandra Dubcovsky's praise of a fellow attendee's presentation: "@Jillio brilliant comment to `task of translator' panel #UMDcolonialTranslation `translation as a haunted space.'" This interface transported discussions beyond the walls of Tawes Hall so that even those who regretfully missed the conference ("Wish I had been there #UMDColonialTranslation") could take part in the dialogue. Indeed, praise for the conference and for fellow participants was not confined to Twitter. When asked about her impressions of the summit, one participant remarked on the highly collegial atmosphere
