The Heidelberg Center for American Studies (HCA) invites applications from international Ph.D. students for its fifteenth annual HCA Spring Academy conference on American Culture, Geography, History, Literature, Politics & Religion. The conference will take place in Heidelberg, Germany, from March 19 to March 23, 2018.
In order to bring postgraduate students together and offer them a venue for extensive discussions, the HCA initiated the Spring Academy in 2004. The previous fourteen HCA Spring Academy conferences have effectively established an international network of young and aspiring researchers in different fields of American Studies.
HCA would like to ask for your help in making next year’s HCA Spring Academy known at your institution and especially to Ph.D. students who might be interested in taking part in the HCA Spring Academy 2018. Please find attached the Call for Papers, which includes more detailed information on the Spring Academy 2018.
