Eighth Biennial Conference of the Swedish Association for American Studies
Írebro, 26-27 September 2014
Call for Papers
SAAS is an academic network that encourages scholarship in the multidisciplinary field of American Studies. SAAS seeks to develop a critical understanding of the role, place and meaning of the United States and North America. In Sweden, research about the US/America is conducted in many different disciplines; the biennial SAAS conference thus functions as an important forum for interdisciplinary exchange and provides American Studies scholars with an opportunity to meet and network.
This is a first call for papers for the 8th SAAS conference, which will be held in Írebro 26-27 September 2014. We invite abstracts for individual papers (2-300 words) or panels (5-600 words) on any topic related to the study of the United States and North America. We welcome contributions from junior and senior scholars in areas including, but not limited to:
Film and Media Studies
US or North American History
Send your abstracts to Jenny Bonnevier (firstname.lastname@example.org) and ChloÚ Avril (email@example.com) by March 1 2014.
