"Between Global Village and Global Dump: Placing America in a Transnational World"

American Studies Leipzig, Germany
First Annual MA-Level Graduate Student Conference
Leipzig, 22-23 March 2010

We are currently accepting proposals by MA-level (or equivalent) graduate students for our conference entitled "Between Global Village and Global Dump: Placing America in a Transnational World." Deadline for proposals: December 16, 2009.

The MA-level graduate student conference "Between Global Village and Global Dump: Placing America in a Transnational World" will explore the role of the two American continents in a global setting. Together we will investigate the dynamics between common labels such as 'global village' and 'global dump' and where to locate the Americas in this continuum. We seek to examine different perspectives of a globalized world and discuss the chances it offers as well as the challenges it poses.

Submission: Please send your 250-word proposal with name, current level of graduate study, affiliated university, and email address to asl-gradconference@uni-leipzig.de by December 16, 2009. We will notify authors of accepted proposals by January 8, 2010. For further information, please refer to http://americanstudies.uni-leipzig.de/asl-gradconference2010 or email us at asl-gradconference@uni-leipzig.de
