The fourth annual American Studies Leipzig MA-level graduate student conference is entitled "Death and Dying in American Culture." The conference will explore diverse representations and conceptions of death as well as investigate social, cultural, and political perspectives on the topic. Approaching the topic in an interdisciplinary manner, we hope to scrutinize varied discourses and conceptualizations of death and dying, and thereby provide new insights into American culture.
The conference organizers welcome contributions from MA-level students from all fields related to American studies. Participants will be able to present their innovative work to an international audience. The conference will be held on March 21-22, 2014, at Leipzig University, Germany.
The deadline for sending in your proposal is January 7, 2014. For more information please refer to the cfp, to the website, or contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
