2004 Australian and New Zealand American Studies Association Conference
University of Auckland, New Zealand
14-17 July 2004
Deadline: 1 February 2004
The 2004 Australian and New Zealand American Studies Association Conference, 'Borders and Boundaries', will be held 14-17 July 2004 at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. The conference organisers welcome all proposals in the field of American Studies. We are particularly interested in papers that reflect the 'paradigmatic shift' occurring within the field of American Studies toward examining U.S. society and culture within a global framework. By looking at the USA from the 'outside in' as well as the traditional 'inside out', the conference will view the field's central concerns of nation, identity, and culture as problematic and comparative. Papers that address the translation and reception of, as well as resistance to, U.S. power and culture across borders are encouraged. Such interrogations necessitate an interdisciplinary approach, the crossing of disciplinary
boundaries that is American Studies. As the conference also marks the 40th anniversary of the Australian and New Zealand American Studies Association (ANZASA), it offers an ideal opportunity for local, national, and international American Studies scholars to exchange ideas about the direction of the field American Studies and the role that 'borders and boundaries' will play in its future.
We seek proposals in the form of single papers, complete panels, workshops, roundtables, and teaching sessions. Please submit one (1) copy of the proposal, postmarked by 1 February 2004, to one of the addressees listed below. Each proposal must include three items:
a cover letter with contact information (address, phone, and e-mail) for each participant
a title and one-page abstract for each paper or presentation
a one-page curriculum vitae for each participant.
Send proposals to one of the contacts provided below. For more
information, contact Jennifer Frost or Paul M.
Taillon via email. For more information on the Australian
and New Zealand American Studies Association, visit the ANZASA website also given below.
