The Western Social Science Association invites papers and panels on American Studies topics for its 54th annual conference, April 11-14, 2012, at the Hyatt Regency, Houston, Texas.
We ask for individual paper -- or panel -- proposals on American Studies topics. The subjects may range very broadly across the arts, humanities, and social sciences -- in history, literary studies, political science, art, education, sociology, and other areas of research.
Send a 150-word abstract and c.v. by 1 December 2011 to: firstname.lastname@example.org -- or to Prof. Daniel J. McInerney, WSSA-American Studies Program Chair, Department of History, Utah State University, Logan, UT 84322-0710.
Scholars willing to serve as moderators/discussants should indicate their research specialties.
The WSSA's annual meeting presents panels in 30 different academic fields, offering an extensive, interdisciplinary range of subjects for scholars to explore. The general call for papers (across all disciplines) may be found online at:
