The Mid-Atlantic American Studies Association invites proposals for presentations at its annual meeting, to be held on April 1st and 2nd, 2005. The event is sponsored by the American Studies Department at Rutgers University (web address shown below). Our broad theme is “Cultural Landscapes.” We particularly invite participants to explore the ways race, class, gender, and ethnicity illuminate questions about the construction and preservation of built environments. We encourage submissions by graduate students and junior faculty. Senior faculty members are encouraged to volunteer to serve as panel chairs.
In addition to presentation sessions, meeting activities will include a site visit, panel discussions, an undergraduate roundtable discussion, and media presentations. This year, the keynote address will be delivered by John Vlach of George Washington University. The title of Dr. Vlach’s presentation will be, “New Jersey's African-American Landscapes in Slavery and Freedom.” More details on the site visit, accommodations, travel directions, the final program, and registration will appear in the spring issue of the this newsletter. Please submit a one-page proposal (250 words maximum) and a cover letter by December 31st, 2004 to:
