Call for Papers for New Graduate Journal as|peers

With a Call for Papers, American Studies Leipzig has announced a new journal for graduate students of American Studies in Europe. The new journal, aptly called as|peers, will offer emerging scholars a voice: A platform to showcase their work beyond the graduate classroom and a forum for discussion and exchange.
as|peers is currently the only peer-reviewed publication channel for graduate students in European American Studies programs.

In its initial issue, as|peers seeks to produce a snapshot of graduate American Studies in Europe. Contributors to the first section thus have no topical limitations. We welcome work focusing on any aspect of the study of ‘America’ — with America being defined as North America. Contributors to the second section, however, are asked to reflect on the theme ‘Transatlantic Encounters.’ Here the editors of as|peers invite creative interpretations and direct response to this topic.

The Call for Papers is available online at You can also download a pdf version directly from american studies leipzig.
Currently, as|peers is the only graduate journal for European American Studies.
