interdisciplinary american studies scholarship
aspeers: emerging voices in american studies
The editors at aspeers recognize the quality and importance of work being done at the graduate level in European American Studies Institutions.
Therefore, aspeers seeks to give emerging scholars a voice: A platform to showcase their work beyond the graduate classroom and a forum for discussion and exchange. We believe that such wider circulation of graduate scholarship has great potential to further energize the field of American Studies. At the same time, aspeers offers emerging scholars the unique opportunity to publish and get recognition for their research at an early point in their careers.
Because we believe that profound discourse on transatlantic matters is also occurring on less traditional levels and through mediums other than the scholarly essay, aspeers will include two separate sections. The first will feature the year’s selected academic essays, and the second will be open to less traditional or less formalized modes of exchange and expression.

aspeers is a project within the American Studies MA Program at the University of Leipzig, Germany. With most members of the reviewing editorial staff being MA candidates, it currently is the only peer-reviewed publication channel for graduate students in European American Studies programs.
