H-Net's Network on American Studies

Network

H-Amstdy

Welcome to H-Amstdy, a member of H-Net Humanities & Social Sciences OnLine. H-Amstdy provides a forum for research and teaching in the field of American Studies, and for interdisciplinary or multi-disciplinary perspectives on culture. The network focuses on the cultures of North America and the United States, and offers an international perspective on the study of American culture.

Our site has changed and there are more changes to come! But let's keep the conversation going and the information flowing. We still want all the CFP's, announcements, and queries that we've always loved on H-Amstdy.

As long as you're subscribed to H-Amstdy, posting is easy. Simply scroll down to the "Write New Discussion Post" link on this page. Enter your post in the field, add a few tags (or "keywords"), and click "Review" at the bottom of the page. If everything looks OK, click "Submit to Editor" at the bottom of the review page and that's it! There's a more elaborate version of these instructions here: https://networks.h-net.org/node/905/pages/977/submit-discussion-post.

Call for applications: Doctoral Program "ProAmHist: American History – History of the Americas“

Deadline: June 1, 2014

The 3-year American History doctoral program (ProAmHist) of the Amerika-Institut at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU) offers graduate students the opportunity to study major issues in the history, culture, media, politics, and society of the United States, Canada as well as the Americas, including the Caribbean. While the program aims to overcome the traditional division between North and Latin America, it foregrounds the study of the U.S.- and Canadian experiences. Yet, it seeks to frame the American continents beyond their colonial and nation-state boundaries by situating them as a region of global interdependencies.
