Recent Activity


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.

The AFEA has also been actively and fruitfully collaborating with the US embassy to promote US-sponsored visiting professors and develop ties with US-based PhD students to attend the yearly conference.

Finally, a book collection in partnership with the Paris Sorbonne University Press, entitled "Americana" has recently been inaugurated. Two books have already been published, another one is due out soon, and this collection is due to perpetuate in the coming years.
