Papers may come from the directions of literature, film, popular culture, visual culture and the media, history, politics, and transatlantic relations and may address issues such as (but not necessarily limited to): narratives of defining American identity, official and alternative histories, perspectives on America, ethnic retellings of American history, what has changed and what has remained the same in the Puritans’ initial plan of imagining America.

1. a 250-word abstract attached as an MS Word file. Your abstract must include the paper title and the name of the academic coordinator who has agreed to supervise your paper.

However, we strongly encourage participants to present and not simply read their papers.
