Latest Issue of COPAS Features Work by ASL Doctoral Students

The latest issue of the journal Current Objectives of Postgraduate American Studies (COPAS) features work by three ASL doctoral students: Claudia Müller, Eleonora Ravizza, and Stefan Schubert. COPAS presents current research from American studies doctoral and postdoctoral students and is closely connected to the Postgraduate Forum of the DGfA/GAAS, which last year took place in Marburg.

Claudia Müller wrote an article on “The Welfare Mother and the Fat Poor: Stereotypical Images and the Success Narrative in Sapphire’s Push,” Eleonora Ravizza contributed a piece on “‘We don’t want life to look difficult, do we?’: Representations of the Fifties and Self-Reflexive Nostalgia in Mad Men,” and Stefan Schubert’s paper is entitled “‘Lose Yourself’: Narrative Instability and Unstable Identities in Black Swan.”
