Come and see what happens in American studies around the world and see how current issues in American studies travel beyond U.S. borders by participating in the ASA International Committee Talkshops.
The ASA International Committee is pleased to offer the talkshop feature pioneered several years ago and successfully carried out during the last nine ASA annual meetings. Each talkshop event begins with a very brief frame-setting presentation by international panelists, each of whom will then facilitate parallel discussions among participants gathered at small roundtables. Toward the end of the session, each group will report briefly on the discussion and present comments on each table’s dialogue by the facilitator or a selected reporter.
