Yearly SHEARly Shindig, New York Style Just a couple of days after Hogmanay, on Saturday, January 3, 2009, the King Juan Carlos I Center at New York University was the venue for our latest annual AHA fete generously hosted by NYU’s Department of His- tory and cosponsored by the Friends of the McNeil Center for Early American Studies and the JER’s publisher, Penn Press. When the last guests departed the 6:00–7:30 p.m. affair around 10 p.m. (now that’s what I call a SHEAR shindig!) everyone agreed that the packed house of SHEARites of all ages had had a braw time, but that it was particularly gratifying to see so many young early Americanists in attendance. Whether our esteemed president, Paul Gilje, treated the company to samples of the primary source material from his current project, ‘‘To Swear Like A Sailor: Cursing in the American Age of Sail,’’ remains shrouded in mystery—you know the rule, what happens in Juan Carlos, stays in Juan Carlos—but damn, he’s good.
