The Executive Board of the Mid-America American Studies Association (MAASA)—a regional chapter of the American Studies Association—invites proposals for cooperation on a joint conference to take place in spring 2013. Non-profit organizations, civic groups, public institutions, universities, undergraduate liberal arts colleges, graduate student organizations, and academic groups located in Arkansas, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, or Wisconsin all are eligible. We especially are interested in proposals that seek to bring together diverse and underrepresented voices and observers of American culture and society, along with a broad range of perspectives that might include artists, community activists, public intellectuals, scholars, teachers, and/or undergraduates.
Every odd-numbered year, MAASA’s annual conference is organized jointly with a cooperating organization that determines the theme and location of the co-hosted conference. In order to further our shared goals, MAASA will be pleased to conduct publicity for the joint conference, to contribute a MAASA board member to the local planning committee, to form connections for securing keynote speaker(s), to ensure that its constituency of attendees for the annual MAASA conference is strongly encouraged to attend the 2013 joint conference, to collaborate on writing grant proposals, and possibly to make modest financial contributions to conference expenses. For additional information about submitting a proposal, please visit the MAASA website
(http://www.uiowa.edu/~maasa/conference.html). Proposals or requests for additional information should be sent to MAASA President Michael Krysko (firstname.lastname@example.org). Proposals will be accepted electronically through Feb. 1, 2012.
