The Sports Studies Caucus of the American Studies Association seeks panel proposals for the 2013 Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, November 21-24, 2013.

Possessing, as we do, a diversity in critical methodologies that is both inclusive and illuminating, the members of the Sports Studies caucus are dedicated to a consideration of sport that relates to issues of broader relevance: enriching and deepening connections between our work and the work of our not-so-sports-inclined colleagues. We seek proposals that examine the wider cultural resonances of sport even as they address the 2013 Annual Meeting theme: "Beyond the Logic of Debt, Toward an Ethics of Collective Dissent."

Have a panel idea? Visit our web page ( or Facebook page ( to seek like-minded presenters. Questions? Contact Noah Cohan at []. Panel proposals submitted by Jan. 12 will be considered for caucus sponsorship by a vote of our members. To be considered, please e-mail with a list of panelists and an abstract of 300 words.
