Jessica Choppin Roney is Associate Professor of History at Temple University and Associate Editor for Critical Engagements at the Journal of the Early Republic.  She is working on a book provisionally titled The Revolution Out of Bounds which argues that much of the most transformative, even “revolutionary,” work to emerge from the US War of Independence happened not in the core thirteen states that revolted, but in the creation, (re)settlement, and political arrangement of the colonies made possible out of and because of the war—stretching from Nova Scotia down the St. Lawrence River Valley to the Great Lakes, the Ohio Valley, trans-Appalachian west, to New Orleans.  She has published articles in or forthcoming in the Journal of American HistoryJournal of the Early RepublicWilliam and Mary QuarterlyEarly American Studies, and Eighteenth-Century Studies, and she is author of Governed by a Spirit of Opposition: The Origins of American Political Practice in Colonial Philadelphia (JHU, 2014).


This workshop is generously co-sponsored by the Effron Center for the Study of America.
