The Southeastern American Studies Association (SASA), the ASA’s largest regional chapter, presents new developments and findings in American studies scholarship, identifies and defines areas of debate about the nature of American culture and its study, and conducts cultural and historical programs on the Southeast and its communities. We work with broad, inclusive conference themes that encompass such topics as art and architecture, black literature and music, American studies as cultural critique, the cultural uses of photography, Native American studies, popular culture, Southern literature, gender studies and much more.

We hope you’ll like us at our Facebook page and that you'll visit our recently refurbished website. This site has information about past conferences, our Critoph Prize (for best paper by a graduate student at each SASA conference), the Barbara Stevens Heusel & Dennis Moore Travel Grants for graduate students, as well as a list of officers and board members.

Our 2023 conference will be held in Atlanta at the end of September; schedule and info available here.
