The workshop in American studies brings 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 the workshop highlights 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.
