Call for Papers

Seventeenth Annual Conference of the Scottish Association for the Study of America.
Hosted by the School of Arts and Humanities, University of Stirling Saturday, 5th March 2016

The Scottish Association for the Study of America (SASA) was formed in 1999 to encourage study of North America in Scotland. The annual one-day conference will take place in the School of Arts and Humanities, University of Stirling on March 5, 2016. The conference has no specific theme, but is intended to reflect the range and vitality of American Studies in Scotland and beyond. Participation is open to scholars from anywhere and proposals are invited in any disciplines, including literature, history, international relations, politics, religious studies, music, film studies and cognate disciplines. As always, the conference is intended to provide a friendly forum in which postgraduate students and academic staff can share and discuss their research and ideas.
Proposals from postgraduate students are particularly welcome and we aim to offer postgraduates a reduced registration fee. There will also be a prize for the best postgraduate paper at the conference (to be considered, such papers will have to be submitted in writing not later than two weeks in advance of the conference). Proposals for individual papers (20 minutes) and panel sessions (one hour) should be sent by email or post to Craig Hanlon and Nicola Martin, at the address below by Sunday, January 31st, 2016. Paper proposals should not exceed a paragraph, panel proposals not a page. Proposals should also contain a brief CV and full contact information.
