CFP: New Wave Coming: An Emerging Academics’ Symposium. The IAAS Postgraduate Conference (Trinity College, Dublin)

October 6, 2014

The IAAS is experiencing something of a Youth Movement, as evidenced by our recent surge in Postgraduate Membership, and the strength of Emerging Academics’ contributions at the recent Annual Conference. ‘New Wave Coming’ aims to provide a forum for emerging voices in the American Studies field in Ireland. Taking our lead from founding principles, this event will explore the ideas, and the ideology, of what, to quote Vernon Louis Parrington, is considered ‘traditionally American’.

Our Postgraduate Symposium this year is not governed by any specific theme or concept. Instead we invite you, our Postgraduate Students, to drive the discussion at this year’s event. We are interested to hear your innovative ideas about American Studies, across all disciplines.

We welcome proposals for twenty-minute papers, on any topic, within the American Studies field. 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, 6th October, 2014.
