American Studies Colloquium Series

The American Studies Colloquium Series presents new research in American Studies. It brings together both junior and senior scholars from different national contexts, and addresses topics ranging from cultural readings of poetry through environmental history to security studies. The Colloquium Series is geared primarily toward American Studies scholars and students, but all talks are open to the interested public. The Colloquium Series talks occur on selected Thursdays at 4:00 pm in room 317 at the American Studies Center unless noted otherwise. All previous ASCS events are listed on this site.


We are sorry to announce that due to concerns over the spread of the Covid-19, we were forced to cancel the first two talks of the series. We will announce new dates and speakers after April 14. The speakers who we will not be able to reschedule for later in the semester, will be invited to speak in the upcoming academic year. Some of the lectures might be running online.
