CALL FOR PAPERS
The 60th annual conference of the British Association for American Studies (BAAS) will be hosted by the Department of Humanities at Northumbria University, Newcastle, 9-12 April, 2015. Paper and panel proposals are welcomed on any subject that falls under the remit of American Studies. The conference marks the sixtieth anniversary of BAAS, the fiftieth of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, and the 150th of the end of the Civil War, and they warmly welcome suggestions for related papers and panels.
Proposals for 20-minute presentations should be a maximum of 250 words and include a provisional title. Proposals by two or more people sharing a common theme are warmly invited and we welcome panels that cross disciplinary boundaries. The conference organisers hope to continue the initiative shown at previous BAAS Annual Conferences by scheduling roundtable discussions and innovative panel presentations, and they encourage such proposals as appropriate.
