The Sports Studies Caucus of the American Studies Association seeks panel proposals for the 2014 Annual Meeting in Los Angeles, CA, November 6-9, 2014.

In particular, we seek proposals that address the 2014 Annual Meeting theme: “The Fun and the Fury: New Dialectics of Pleasure and Pain In the Post-American Century.” We likewise encourage panel submissions that engage the Southern California sports-scape, which is ripe for critical inquiry.

We also urge interested parties to consider non-traditional panel formats and the creation of interlocking or related panel sessions. For more information on panel formatting, visit http://www.theasa.net/submit_a_proposal and scroll down to the header marked “Proposal Types.”

Have a panel idea? Visit our web page Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/135180959965247/) to seek like-minded presenters, or contact Noah Cohan at [ncohan@wustl.edu]. Panel proposals submitted by Jan. 13 will be considered for caucus sponsorship by a vote of our members. To be considered, please e-mail ncohan@wustl.edu with a list of panelists and an abstract of 300 words.
