Ruhr PhD Forum in American Studies

Ruhr Universität Bochum and Universität Duisburg-Essen, Germany, January 26-27, 2018

Call for Papers (by October 13, 2017)

The doctoral colloquium Ruhr PhD Forum in American Studies offers doctoral candidates in American Studies from the University Alliance Ruhr (UAR) a forum to present their dissertation projects as work in progress. The UAR consists of the Ruhr Universität Bochum, TU Dortmund, and the Universität Duisburg-Essen. This year, we are again extending our invitation to advanced master’s students and graduates from universities outside the UAR to discuss their projects with both young and experienced scholars. We welcome contributions focusing on the study of American history, culture, media, and literature. Presentations will be discussed by peers, American Studies professors of the three universities, and further experts with a comprehensive perspective on American Studies. Commentators will provide advice and ideas on contents, theoretical foundations, as well as methodology.

If you are interested in participating, please submit your proposal to ruhrphd@gmail.com by 13 October 2017 including

  • title of your presentation
  • abstract (max. 300 words)
  • a short biographical note (max. 5 sentences)
  • technical requirements (notebook, projector, loudspeakers, Internet connection, adapters, etc.).

Presentations should not exceed 15–20 minutes and will be followed by a discussion. A travel subsidy will be offered to the selected students applying from outside the UAR.

The final program for the 2018 Ruhr PhD Forum in American Studies as well as further information on the conference will be posted at the RuhrCenter of American Studies website http://www.amstudies-ruhr.de
