The 24th annual conference of the Scottish Association for the Study of America (SASA) will convene on March 4, 2023. The SAS committee invites proposals for papers exploring all aspects of and approaches to the history and culture of the Americas. The day before the conference, on Friday, March 3th SASA will be holding its bi-annual Postgraduate Workshop. More details will be announced in due course. The conference and workshop will be hosted by the Andrew Hook Centre for American Studies at the University of Glasgow.
SASA recognizes a broad definition of the Americas and includes any topic situated within North, South or Latin America, at any point in history. The intent of the conference is to reflect the range and vitality of American studies and history in Scotland and beyond. As such, there is no particular theme to the conference. Participation is open to all scholars. SASA particularly encourages proposals from masters and doctoral students. Abstracts are welcome from all disciplines, including history, literature, politics, culture, international relations, transnational studies, religious studies, music, film studies and cognate fields. The conference aims to provide a friendly forum in which postgraduate students, early career researchers, and academic staff can share and discuss their research.
Please send proposals for individual papers of no longer than 10-15 minutes via email to ScotAmStudies@gmail.com. Abstracts for paper proposals should not exceed 250 words. Please also provide a brief CV or a brief bio containing full contact information. Proposals are due by midnight on 23 January 2023. SASA intends to notify proposers about the status of their paper proposal and further details about the conference by early February 2023.
Please email the society with any questions relating to the conference and proposed submission.
