May 2013, the AFEA organized its annual conference on the theme of “Religion and Spirituality” in Angers. The conference, with over 30 workshops, was attended by over 230 scholars and welcomed three keynote speakers from the US (Sally Promey, Fanny Howe and Lisa Bitel). The proceedings of this very successful conference will soon be published in a special edition of the RFEA journal.
The next AFEA annual conference with the theme, “American models and counter-models” will be held in Lyon from May 21 to May 24, 2014.
The two journals (one paper printed, the other electronic), RFEA and Transatlantica, have been very active in the past year, with three issues each and many more to come. The editors in chief of the journals have also been promoting American studies in the Paris Journal Fair which took place last winter.
