Two American studies programs in Germany have recently published CfPs for upcoming graduate conferences. Both CfPs may well be seen to closely relate to "American Anxieties," the topical focus of our 7th issue. So we thought they might both be interesting to potential aspeers contributors and to graduate students of American studies in general.
In March of 2014, master students at American Studies Leipzig will host a conference focusing on "Death and Dying in American Culture."
Then in May of 2014, the Graduate School of North American Studies at the FU Berlin will host a conference on "Trust Issues: Community, Contingency, and Security in North America."
