Journal of Early American History
Editors-in-Chief: Jaap Jacobs, University of St Andrews, Paul Otto, George Fox University, Elodie Peyrol-Kleiber, Université de Poitiers and L.H. Roper, State University of New York—New Paltz.
The early modern colonization of the Americas ranks among the most influential developments that shaped the modern world. Between the initial exploratory European contacts with the Americas in the late fifteenth century and the eventual independence of American states from Europe lies the multifaceted development of small communities into large colonies, which drew upon their European inheritance and their New World experience and interaction with non-European cultures and societies to form distinctive cultures and identities.
The peer-reviewed Journal of Early American History is dedicated to the advancement of scholarly understanding of the history of the colonization of the Americas and appears three times annually. It offers explorations on any aspect of early American history to a broad audience of historians. These investigations may be conceived in the broadest way chronologically, geographically, and thematically, whether in explicitly comparative studies, or by the grouping of studies.
