The Scottish Association for the Study of America's 24th Annual Conference

The SASA committee invites proposals for papers exploring all aspects of and approaches to the history and culture of the Americas.  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. We particularly encourage proposals from masters and doctoral students. The conference aims to provide a friendly forum in which postgraduate students, early careers 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 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 end of day on 23 January 2023. We intend to notify proposers about the status of their paper proposal and further details about the conference by early February 2023.
