CFP: ‘My Dream or Yours: Make America _____ Again?’ (University College Cork)

My Dream or Yours: Make America ___ Again?

University College Cork

26th November, 2016

The Irish Association for American Studies draws together scholars and researchers, new and experienced, on the island of Ireland, to bring fresh perspectives to the field of American Studies. The 2016 IAAS Postgraduate Symposium, “My Dream or Yours: Make America ___ Again?” encourages scholars to question cultural, political and social perspectives of the United States, historically, today, and tomorrow. The concept of American identity is one which has been continuously interrogated since the first colonies were established, and remains a pressing question in all facets of American life today.

“My Dream or Yours: Make America ___ Again” is a one-day interdisciplinary symposium that seeks to provide an opportunity for Postgraduate Students and Early Career Scholars to share their ideas and add their individual voices to this melting pot of academic exploration.

We welcome proposals for fifteen-minute papers on any topic within the field of American Studies, Continental American perspectives (Canada and South America) as well as the United States. We also welcome group proposals for themed panels. Concepts for proposals may include, but are by no means limited to:

  • Literary representations of America, American people, and American culture

  • Historical Insights and Impact

  • Political Perspectives

  • American Music, from Bluegrass to R&B

  • Gender, Class & Race

  • Americans Abroad

  • Globalisation

  • Affect

  • Film, Television and Media

  • Digital Humanities

  • Art & Architecture

The deadline for submissions is Monday,10th October, 2016.
