Thursday, September 25: interest meeting/mixer

Please join us for the Fall 2014 American Studies Consortium interest meeting/mixer

Thursday, September 25
3222 Angell Hall
4 PM

Do your academic interests relate to the literature, history, and/or culture of the Americas? Are you looking for ways to expand the disciplinary, methodological, or historical horizons of your research? Are you interested in American public scholarship? Come meet fellow graduate students for food and conversation as we re-launch our interdisciplinary interest group for the 2014-2015 academic year. Swap knowledge about all things Americanist, from course offerings to conference opportunities, reading lists to research methods. Find out about and weigh in on this year’s events, including dissertation chapter workshops, reading groups, professionalization roundtables, and visiting speakers (and mark your calendars for a talk by American literary scholar and public intellectual Joanna Brooks, Monday October 20 at 4 PM).

Pre-candidates (including first-year students) are especially welcome!

Refreshments will be provided.
