Proposals for individual papers or full panel presentations are now being accepted for the annual PNASA conference, April 15-17, 2010, at the Red Lion Hotel at the Park in Spokane, Washington. Papers on topics related to the conference theme, "Citizenship and Belonging," are especially encouraged. Proposals on other topics in American studies are also welcome.

In order to be considered for inclusion in the conference program, please submit an abstract of around 250 words by January 31, 2010, via e-mail to Dr. Brian Donahue, PNASA president. (Previous deadline was January 15.)

Please include along with your abstract submission the following information:

* name, e-mail, and regular mail address
* telephone
* affiliation and position
* willingness to chair a session
* desired A-V equipment

If you are proposing a full panel, include the names, affiliations, and positions of all participants, along with abstracts for the individual contributions.

Presenters and chairs will be notified by February 28, 2010.

PNASA as an organization is proud of the collegial atmosphere and fruitful intellectual exchange evident at our annual conferences, where experienced scholars as well as graduate students and advanced undergraduates come together to discuss their work. We ask those whose abstracts are accepted and who register for the conference to plan to attend both days of sessions (Friday and Saturday).
