CFP: Transatlantic Studies Association Annual Conference


The Transatlantic Studies Association is hosting its 17th Annual Conference on July 9-11, 2018, at the University of North Georgia, Dahlonega, Georgia, United States. The deadline for panel and paper proposals is February 2, 2018.

Description:  For the time since it was established in 2002, the TSA is holding its annual conference on the other side of the Atlantic. TSA is a broad network of scholars who use the ‘transatlantic’ as a frame of reference for their work in political, economic, cultural, historical, environmental, literary, and IR/security studies. All transatlantic-themed paper and panel proposals from these and related disciplines are welcome.

This conference thus welcomes papers in the following areas: History; International Relations and Security Studies; Literature, Film, and Culture; Planning and the Environment; Economics; proposals that investigate the ‘transatlantic’ and explore it through frames of reference such as ideology, empire, race, religion, migration, political mobilisation, or social movements; and proposals that incorporate perspectives that involve north-south and south-south transatlantic connections, as well as north-north.

Both panel proposals and individual papers are welcome. Panel proposals are encouraged to include a discussant. New members and junior scholars are especially welcome.

Please send individual paper proposals (a 300 word abstract + brief CV) and complete panel proposals (300 word overview + 300 word abstracts for the papers + brief CVs) to the conference email: Deadline for panel and paper proposals: 2 February 2018

Conference proposals should be directed to the conference address:
