The Significance of the Frontier in an Age of Transnational HistoryThe concept of the frontier among scholars has changed considerably over the past 25 years. This symposium invited historians, literary scholars, and cultural critics to revisit the famed Frontier Thesis written by Frederick Jackson Turner more than 100 years ago.
In three panel discussions, scholars explored the significance of the frontier for the study of U.S. imperialism, American culture, and settler colonialism. The conference included keynote addresses by Kerwin Lee Klein, of University of California, Berkeley (audio unavailable); and Patrick Wolfe, of La Trobe University.
The conference took place at the Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens on Feb. 25, 2012, and was convened by graduate students Erik Altenbernd (University of California, Irvine) and Alex Young (University of Southern California). It was sponsored by the Huntington-USC Institute on California and the West; USC-Huntington Early Modern Studies Institute; the Research Division of The Huntington Library; the Salvatori Fund, USC Dornsife College of Arts and Letters; the Department of English, USC; the University of California Multi-Campus Research Unit in World History; and the Department of American Studies and Ethnicity, USC.
