The HAAS 2024 conference invites contributions that address diverse modes and narratives of moving beyond crisis in American culture. The presentations are to explore the possible uses of dialogue, negotiation, coping mechanisms, mobility or hybridisation in various attempts to tackle senses of crisis, ambiguity, and various forms of cultural, political, social, linguistic, mental, affective, moral disorder represented by cultural forms within the contexts of transnational American Studies. The general aim is to further explore the ways methodologies in the humanities may diagnose, process, and proactively prevent the cultural experience of crisis in diverse transnational American contexts. Scholars and PhD students from various fields including literature, history, social and cultural studies, visual culture, politics, applied linguistics, etc. are encouraged to offer their critical insights on any aspect of crisis and regeneration in American culture.

Potential paper and panel submissions can address but are not limited to:

● narratives of crisis, coping, healing

● languages of crisis and regeneration

● displacement and migration as ways of regeneration

● activism, solidarity, consciousness-raising and crisis management

● the ethics of crisis management

● crises and negotiations in diplomacy

● hybridization and healing

● climate change, climate crisis

● gendered perspectives on coping
