aspeers is the first and currently only peer-reviewed print journal for MA-level American studies scholars in Europe. It is a platform for the best work done by American studies graduate students below the PhD level.It aims to foster academic exchange among young Americanists across Europe, and to thereby advance the field as well as its genuine European perspective on 'America' and its presences and effects around the world. As of its fourth issue, aspeers features a general section in addition to a topical one that brings academic and creative works into a dialogue on one common theme.

"Trans-Scripts" -- a student run, faculty advised online interdisciplinary journal in the Humanities and Social Sciences -- has recently been created at UC Irvine. The journal is seeking graduate student work, and I was wondering whether you would be so kind as to distribute the Call for Papers (attached as a pdf) to the grad students in the Humanities and Social Sciences at your institution.
