The fourth Annual Kent Americanist Symposium – The Spacial Americas – will take place on Monday 8th June, 2020 at the University of Kent’s Canterbury campus. Aimed primarily at PhD students, the Symposium offers early-career researchers a chance to showcase their own research in a friendly, informal environment.
CALL FOR PAPERS:
This symposium invites Postgraduate Researchers and Early Career Researchers in the field of American Studies to evaluate and analyse the relationship between the Americas and ‘space’. This could include a geographical approach to ‘space’ and ‘place’, an ecological focus on the environment, the art of mapping, the relationship between the country and the city, the American notion of ‘the frontiers’, a transatlantic focus on the relationship between the Americas and other spaces, or even a more literal look at America’s role in exploring outer space.
Please submit a proposal for a 20-minute paper to email@example.com by April 20th, 2020. Proposals should include the title of the paper, a 250-word abstract, and a 50-word biography. Travel bursaries will be offered accordingly.
Keynote Speaker: Professor Anne-Marie Angelo, University of Sussex.
