10/27-10/29 Ireland, America, and the Worlds of Mathew Carey. Conference cosponsored by the McNeil Center for Early American Studies, The Program in Early American Economy and Society, The Library Company of Philadelphia, and The University of Pennsylvania Libraries

This first part of a trans-Atlantic conference will feature presentations and discussion about printer and editor of influential periodicals, Mathew Carey (1760-1839). By the mid-1790s, Carey had transformed himself from printer to publisher, from artisan to manufacturer, and into one of the early republic's foremost political
economists. Carey's identity as an Irish-American and a 24option uk Catholic, and his contributions to the economy and politics are inseparable from the trans-Atlantic print culture of the early national era. This conference is free and open to everyone interested in its themes. To review the program and read pre-circulated papers for this conference, which will be posted in late September, please register electronically at: http://www.librarycompany.org/careyconference/ .The second part of this trans-Atlantic conference will be held at Trinity College Dublin, on November 17-19, 2011. It will be hosted by the Centre for Irish-Scottish and Comparative Studies and Trinity College Dublin, and the Trinity Long Room Hub in association with the National Library of Ireland, University College Dublin, and the University of Aberdeen.
