"1924-2024: The American Immigrant Narrative Revisited"
From April 4-6, 2024, the 35th Biennial European Association for American Studies (EAAS) conference, titled "1924-2024: The American Immigrant Narrative Revisited", takes place at Amerikahaus in Munich. It is hosted by the Bavarian American Academy (BAA). The EAAS conference seeks to engage with the complicated histories that have shaped the American immigrant narrative in all of its variations across time and from different disciplinary angles.
To assess the ambivalent legacies of the American immigrant narrative, this conference calls for an intersectional approach to the topic which also examines gendered regimes of immigration, settler colonialism and often suppressed histories of Indigenous communities, the precarious labor conditions of (im)migrant workers, class restrictions, and sexual exploitation, past and present.
We invite scholars interested in exploring these topics to submit their proposals for individual papers or full panels. Proposals can be submitted via our conference tool.
Deadline for proposal submission: September 15, 2023.
Notifications of acceptance will be sent out by November 15, 2023.
