full name / name of organization:
Lisa Stein Haven/SW TX PCA ACA
Call for Papers: American Studies Area
Proposal submission deadline: November 16, 2012
Panels are now being formed in the American Studies area. Scholars, researchers, professionals, teachers, graduate students and others interested in this area are encouraged to submit an abstract. Graduate students are especially encouraged and will be assisted in accessing any and all award opportunities the conference and/or associations provide. The full list of awards for graduate students can be found at http://www.swtxpca.org/documents/48.html.
American Studies is a broad area and one that MUST be interdisciplinary. While the area is one that should be centered in the cultures of the Americas, especially the United States, a particularly vibrant area of inquiry is increasingly found in the transnational, intra-¬¬national and global considerations of these cultures. Topics offering multiple perspectives in this vein on the American Southwest are especially welcome. Listed below are several possible topics, however, these should not be considered either prescriptive or limiting in regards to your creativity in this area.
• Empire and Conquest in 21st century America
Email 250-¬¬word abstracts for individual presentations or 500-¬¬word abstracts for panel proposals to Area Chair Lisa Haven (English Department, Ohio University Zanesville) at firstname.lastname@example.org AND submit your proposal directly into the database at http://conference2013.swtxpca.org/. It will have to be submitted there eventually anyway. Upon acceptance, all presenters must register by December 31, 2012.
