[UPDATE] Conference of the Swedish Association for American Studies Örebro, Sweden 26-27 September 2014, Abstract Deadline May 8
full name / name of organization:
SAAS, Swedish Association for American Studies
Eighth Biennial Conference of the Swedish Association for American Studies
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 second call for papers for the 8th SAAS conference, which will be held in Örebro 26-27 September 2014. We invite abstracts for individual papers (200-250 words) that deal with topics covered by the panels presented below.
The panels that welcome contributors are:
Contemporary North American Poetry
Postmodern North American literature
Understanding “American family” in the 21st century
Nation-building and Imagination in 19th-Century American Culture
Religion and American Culture
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.
Please note that this is not a general call for papers and that we only welcome contributions for the panels listed above.
