CFP: Transatlantic Studies Association Annual Conference (University College Cork)

February 3, 2017

Transatlantic Studies Association 16th Annual Conference
University College Cork, Ireland
10-12 July 2017
Call for Papers

Established in 2002, the TSA is a broad network of scholars who use the ‘transatlantic’ as a frame of reference for their work in political, economic, cultural, historical, environmental, literary, and IR/security studies. All transatlantic-themed paper and panel proposals from these and related disciplines are welcome.
This conference thus welcomes papers in the following areas:
1. History
2. International Relations and Security Studies
3. Literature, Film and Culture
4. Planning and the Environment
5. Economics
6. Proposals that investigate the ‘transatlantic’ and explore it through frames of reference such as ideology, empire, race, religion, migration, political mobilisation, or social movements
7. Proposals that incorporate perspectives that involve north-south and south-south transatlantic connections, as well as north-north

Both panel proposals and individual papers are welcome. Panel proposals are encouraged to include a discussant. New members and junior scholars are especially welcome.

Please send individual paper proposals (a 300 word abstract + brief CV) and complete panel proposals (300 word overview + 300 word abstracts for the papers + brief CVs) to the conference email: tsacork2017@gmail.com Deadline for panel and paper proposals: 3 February 2017

We aim to make a decision on your proposal within three weeks.

The Conference Location:
University College Cork is located in Cork, Ireland along the southern coast of the country. The Transatlantic Studies Association has been to Cork twice before in 2007 and 2012 which attracted above average numbers of delegates. The conference site and university is within walking distance of the city, and within short distances to beautiful seaside towns and beaches and coastal, forest and hill walks. Cork Airport is accessible from a number of European hubs and Dublin and Shannon serve as connections to flights from the United States and elsewhere. Train and bus services connect these airports with Cork.

Accommodation in Cork is affordable across the spectrum, including hotels, B&Bs and Student halls of residence. Cork can be busy in the summertime, so it is advisable to book your accommodation early. We have secured accommodation as part of the conference package. This will be available to delegates when registering for the conference on a first come first served basis. For those wishing to make their own arrangements, a list of B&Bs and other hotels will be made available on the conference website.

Conference proposals should be directed to the conference address: tsacork2017@gmail.com
