EAAS Conference 2024

Munich, April 4-6, 2024

From April 4-6, 2024, the 35th Biennial EAAS-conference, titled 1924-2024: The American Immigrant Narrative Revisited, takes place at Amerikahaus Munich. It is hosted by the Bavarian American Academy (BAA).

With its focus on the immigrant narrative, this conference of the European Association for American Studies 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.

The submission phase has ended on September 15, 2023. We invited scholars interested in exploring these topics to submit their proposals for individual papers or full panels. Notifications of acceptance were sent out by November 15, 2023.
