Fellows' Reunion & Jamboree: May 31 - June 3, 2018

Please plan to join us from May 31 - June 2, 2018, when the JCB will welcome former fellows and members of the Library’s Associates to our second official JCB Jamboree!

This year, we will collaborate with the Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture (celebrating its 75th year in June, 2018) around the theme of water, the fourth and final element in our Four Elements series exploring the early environmental history of the Americas. The Jamboree will feature a jointly sponsored conference exploring enslaved migrations within the Americas on June 1-3, but the activities will commence on Thursday, May 31 with a number of special panels focused around maritime history and a special tribute to the late Daniel Vickers, a preeminent historian of early America and a much-beloved colleague to many of us.
