Call for presentations
The French Association for American Studies invites doctoral students in American studies to take part in the Graduate Symposium (“Doctoriales”) specifically organized on their behalf during its annual conference. This year's workshops will be held on Wednesday May 21, 2014 (9.30 am to 6 pm.) at the Université de Paris 3 Sorbonne nouvelle (France). The conference itself will take place on May 21 to 24, 2014.

Since 2008, the AFEA has been encouraging the internationalization of its Graduate Student Symposium. Since 2013, The AFEA has decided to further internationalize its Graduate Student Symposium by covering the travel expenses of up to three candidates from the United States. All students are, in addition, invited to attend the whole conference free of registration charges. The symposium provides an opportunity for Ph.D. students to present their research in a less formal session than that of a full conference panel, and confront it to that of other European and American scholars. Doctoral students may be at an early or more advanced stage of their research. The proposals will be commented upon by professors specializing in related fields of expertise. Candidates are invited to give their presentations in English within one of the two workshops offered: 1) American literature, or 2) “American civilization” (history, sociology, political science...). Proposals relevant to both fields (film studies, visual arts or music, for instance), or to another field (such as translation studies or linguistics) can be sent to either of the co-chairs.
- Candidates must send a Curriculum Vitae and a 500-word abstract summarizing their dissertation proposal plus an estimated budget of traveling expenses and funding otherwise available to them.
- Proposals in CIVILIZATION must be sent electronically to both Professors Luc BENOIT À LA GUILLAUME (email@example.com) and Anne OLLIVIER-MELLIOS ( firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Proposals in LITERATURE must be sent electronically to both Professors Françoise PALLEAU-PAPIN (email@example.com) and Mathieu DUPLAY (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Deadline for application : February 15, 2014. The symposium organizers will respond to all applicants by March 15, 2014.
