"Ethnic Studies and American Studies in the 21st Century"
The ASA Students' Committee invites you to join the discussion at this ASA panel by reviewing two articles at the panel's Web site (below).
The panel is designed to explore the intellectual and practical questions that arise at the juncture of Ethnic Studies and American Studies. Panelists' presentations will draw on their own research and respond to Mary Helen Washington's 1997 ASA presidential address, "Disturbing the Peace: What Happens to American Studies if You Put African American Studies at the Center?" and a new article by George Sanchez, "Creating the Multicultural Nation: Adventures in Post-National American Studies in the 1990s." These two articles are available now at the Web addres noted above. We hope to see you at the panel!
