CFP: ASA Annual Meeting in Atlanta, Georgia, November 8-11, 2018

The Sports Studies Caucus of the American Studies Association seeks panel proposals for the 2018 Annual Meeting in Atlanta, Georgia, November 8-11, 2018.

In particular, we seek proposals that address the 2018 Annual Meeting theme: "States of Emergence.” Per the ASA website: "“States of Emergence” emphasizes that our sense of crisis must be thought alongside our constant commitment to challenging the calamities that beset us and to producing alternative—indeed better—worlds.” The Sports Studies Caucus likewise encourages panel submissions that engage the Atlanta 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 the header marked “Proposal Types.”
