Graduate Journal aspeers Calls for Papers on "American Health" by 12 Oct 2014

full name / name of organization: 
aspeers: emerging voices in american studies
contact email: 
info@aspeers.com

From the health checks on Ellis Island to long-standing and recently increasing debates about the (un-)Americanness of different models of health care to Michelle Obama's "Let's Move!" campaign aimed at improving the health of Americans, public discourse in the US has continually connected notions of health to notions of Americanness and has negotiated one via the other. Moreover, a culturally relevant, broad, metaphorical usage of health is evidenced in the omnipresence of such phrases as "the health of the nation," "crime epidemic," and even "Bieber fever." Not surprisingly, the topic of "American Health," broadly conceived, has garnered significant attention among scholars in a variety of disciplines.

aspeers will, therefore, dedicate the topical section of its eighth annual issue to "American Health."
