The Sports Studies Caucus of the American Studies Association seeks panel proposals for the 2015 Annual Meeting in Toronto, Canada, October 8-11, 2015.

In particular, we seek proposals that address the 2015 Annual Meeting theme: "The (Re)production of Misery and the Ways of Resistance." We likewise encourage panel submissions that engage the Canadian sportscape and its role in the sporting cultures of the Americas.

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."
