About Post45

Post45 is a collective of scholars working on American literature and culture since 1945. The group was founded in 2006 and has met annually since to discuss new work in the field. We celebrated our fifth year of existence with a larger conference at the Rock Hall in Cleveland, April 29 & 30th, 2011. In November of 2013, the board voted to invite scholars in the field to propose Post45 conferences to be hosted at their own institutions. If you are interested in discussing the possibility of hosting a Post45 conference, please contact us.
