Eighth Biennial Conference of the Swedish Association for American Studies
Örebro, 26-27 September 2014
Call for Papers

SAAS is an academic network that encourages scholarship in the multidisciplinary field of American Studies. SAAS seeks to develop a critical understanding of the role, place and meaning of the United States and North America. In Sweden, research about the US/America is conducted in many different disciplines; the biennial SAAS conference thus functions as an important forum for interdisciplinary exchange and provides American Studies scholars with an opportunity to meet and network.

This is a first call for papers for the 8th SAAS conference, which will be held in Örebro 26-27 September 2014. We invite abstracts for individual papers (2-300 words) or panels (5-600 words) on any topic related to the study of the United States and North America. We welcome contributions from junior and senior scholars in areas including, but not limited to:

Anthropology
Art
Cultural Studies
Film and Media Studies
Gender Studies
Literature
Musicology
Popular Culture
Political Science
Religion
US or North American History

Send your abstracts to Jenny Bonnevier (jenny.bonnevier@oru.se) and Chloé Avril (chloe.avril@eng.gu.se) by March 1 2014.
