AMS Colloquia and Workshops


Colloquia and workshops in American studies bring together students and faculty from the wide range of departments that contribute to the Program in American Studies. By encouraging a diversity of topics from researchers in a variety of disciplines, we hope to highlight the advantages of the “in-between” disciplinary space that American studies inhabits at Princeton. Our goal is to provide a forum where presenters can receive feedback from diverse disciplinary perspectives and participants can be exposed to new methodologies and new topics for research. Moreover, we hope to foster a community of advanced undergraduates, graduate students and faculty who share in the common project of researching the American experience.


While the University offers virtual events on a remote basis, workshops will be conducted in a colloquium format, with speakers presenting work in progress, and discussion responding to the research presented in that session. Papers will not be distributed.
