The Encyclopedia of American Studies Forum (EAS), an online publication on the American Studies Association website, invites contributions for its planned 2016 feature on "Exhibiting American Studies." This theme follows previous forums with multiple authors on "Screening American Studies" (film and video work in American Studies), "Writing American Studies," and "Teaching American Studies." A full list of EAS Forums is available hereEach Forum includes three to five brief essays of 500-1000 words on the concepts and practices of producing American Studies work in different media. In "Exhibiting American Studies," the editor seeks essays before December 15, 2015, on museum and online exhibitions and classroom activities involving American Studies approaches to objects and their interpretation.
