Since the arrival of the first European colonists on the North American continent, frontiers have served as powerful forces within the public imagination. Often characterized as lawless hinterlands, frontiers call boundaries into question and operate largely independently of, yet in juxtaposition with, larger units--imperial, national, cultural, racial--in which they are classified. For this proposed panel to the Charles Brockden Brown Society Annual Conference in Lexington, Kentucky from October 3-5, 2019, we invite proposals exploring any facet of the utility of frontiers, or borderlands, to protest or revise social or cultural ideas from the colonial period to the present.
