Scottish Association for the Study of America (SASA) 25th Annual Conference - CALL FOR PAPERS


Call for Papers, deadline – 15 November 2023

The 25th annual conference of the Scottish Association for the Study of America (SASA) will convene on March 2, 2024. The conference will be hosted by the Division of History, Heritage and Politics at the University of Stirling.

The SASA committee hereby invites proposals for papers exploring all aspects of and approaches to the history, culture and politics of the Americas. 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 – however, for this 25th anniversary event, we are also especially looking for some contributions discussing the history, character and debates of American Studies in Scotland. Participation is open to all scholars, but we particularly encourage proposals from masters and doctoral students, and early careers researchers, and we prioritize them in the programme. Abstracts are welcome from all nations and disciplines, including history, literature, politics, culture, international relations, transnational studies, religious studies, music, film studies and cognate fields. The conference aims to provide a friendly forum in which postgraduate students, early careers researchers, and academic staff can share and discuss their research. We are exploring the chance to develop an anniversary publication.

Please send abstracts for individual papers of no longer than 10-15 minutes via email to Abstracts should not exceed 250 words. Please also provide a brief CV or a brief bio of maximum equal length, containing full contact information. Proposals are due by midnight on 15 November 2023. We intend to notify proposers about the status of their paper proposal and further details about the conference by late November 2023.

Please email above with any questions relating to the conference and proposal submission.
