Our MA-level graduate conference “Urban America: Mediating City Space as Place,” taking place on April 2, 2016 in Leipzig (Germany) will investigate the construction, mediation, and representation of urban spaces and places on an interdisciplinary level. Proposals are due by January 8, 2016.

Please find attached the complete call for proposals and the conference poster. For further information, please visit our website at http://americanstudies.uni-leipzig.de/asl-gradconference-2016.

We would be very grateful if you could alert your students to this opportunity to present and discuss their own research and to gain conference experience early on in their careers. Please note that there will be no conference fee and that a limited number of travel grants may be available on a case-by-case basis.
