The American Studies Graduate Committee at the University of Texas at Austin calls for papers for
its upcoming graduate conference, "The American Environment: Within and Without," to be held in
Austin on September 28-29, 2006.

"Environment" is a term which invites myriad interpretations in varied contexts. Our conference
theme urges participants to explore the American environment both inside and across these
different contexts. We encourage the consideration of all types of environments, including the
musical, literary, religious, political, psychological, natural, built, social, and transnational,
and those which merge or transcend these types.
