CFP: ASA Annual Meeting in Honolulu, Hawai'i, November 7-10, 2019

The Sports Studies Caucus of the American Studies Association seeks panel proposals for the 2019 Annual Meeting in Honolulu, Hawaii'i, November 7-10, 2019.

In particular, we seek proposals that address the 2019 Annual Meeting theme: "Build As We Fight.” Per the ASA website: “the 2019 theme questions how interdisciplinary, intersectional analyses can help to dissect our historical moment and envision alternative futures. We seek to build from and think with the “Resistance” movements that have arisen in response to authoritarianism, genocide, dispossession, and extractive capitalism. We encourage proposals that advance expansive platforms for transformative change and modeled practices that prefigure more just relationships.” The Sports Studies Caucus likewise encourages panel submissions that engage the Hawaiian and trans-Pacific sportscape and its role in the sporting cultures of the Americas.

We also urge interested parties to consider non-traditional panel formats and the creation of interlocking or related panel sessions. For more information on preparing a proposal, visit and scroll down to item #8 “What alternative formats will be accepted.”

To be considered, please e-mail with a list of panelists and an abstract of 300 words.
