21st Annual Conference of the Scottish Association for the Study of America

The Scottish Association for the Study of America (SASA) was formed in 1999 to encourage the study of North America in Scotland. SASA's annual conference will take place at the University of Dundee on Saturday 29th February 2020.

SASA recognises a broad definition of the Americas and includes anything situated within North, South or Latin America, at any point in history. The intent of the conference is to reflect the range and vitality of American studies and history in Scotland and beyond.

As such, there is no particular theme to the conference. Participation is open to all scholars. We particularly encourage participation from masters and doctoral students. 

The committee encourages diverse panels, and papers have been sought from all disciplines, including history, literature, politics, culture, international relations, transnational studies, religious studies, music, film studies and cognate fields.

The conference aims to provide a friendly forum in which postgraduate students, early career researchers, and academic staff can share and discuss their research.
