Chacón will give her presentation, titled “Charles Brockden Brown’s Eastern Transference,” at the Charles Brockden Brown 12th Biennial Conference, “Dissent of the Governed, c18-c21.” Her presentation is part of a roundtable on settler colonialism.

Brown, a novelist, historian and editor from Philadelphia, is widely considered the most important novelist in the early history of the United States until James Fenimore Cooper.
