CFP: Workshop:  Strategies and Resources for Financia

CFP: Workshop for AM Studies Directors, Chairs, Coordinators:

Strategies and Resources for Financial Survival in an Age of Austerity

Based on feedback and requests from American Studies directors at the 2012 ASA conference, the ASA Committee on Programs and Centers is organizing a workshop panel connecting the 2013 ASA conference theme of “Debt” to the ongoing conversation within American Studies about neoliberalism and/in higher education.

We are seeking interested parties to participate in workshop for ASA 2013 in Washington DC (Nov. 21-24, 2013) focused on practical strategies for funding and sustaining American Studies majors, minors, programs and departments in the current economic and higher ed. climate. We encourage a discussion and showcase of practical strategies in connection with larger economic realities whether they are institution-wide, regional, national, or global.
Ideally we are seeking chairs, program directors, and coordinators from a range of institutional types and geographic locations. We hope to address the needs of undergraduate programs as well as graduate programs and the particular issues faced by those programs at small liberal arts colleges, large state universities and non-US institutions.

Each prospective panelist will share with workshop attendees his/her experience overcoming (or avoiding) funding crises and/or approaches to sustaining programs. Panelists will also (importantly) share materials related to successful funding with workshop attendees.

Panelists will bring hard copies of such materials (which may include, but are not limited to, budget memos, letters to administrators, grant proposals) and agree to make these available in electronic form for dissemination by the Committee on Programs and Centers if possible.

The workshop will begin with each panelist briefly (5 minutes) introducing him/herself and the particular issue, strategy and materials they have to share. Following this, panelists will move to separate tables and facilitate small group discussion/sharing sessions with those audience members whose institutions or needs best match their own. Workshop attendees may circulate as they see fit.

Interested panelists should contact Elizabeth Duclos-Orsello (.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)) as soon as possible. We will need a brief description of your successes and/or topics they wish to discuss/materials they wish to
share ( along with a 1 page CV) by January 17, 2013.
