Welcome


Founded in 1954, the European Association for American Studies (EAAS) unites national and joint national American Studies associations across Europe. The EAAS Board comprises representatives from each member association and holds annual meetings. For detailed information, please refer to the statutes on this page. Contact details for EAAS officers and board members are provided below, along with links to member association websites.

Mission Statement

The European Association for American Studies is a confederation of national and joint national associations of American Studies in Europe. It was founded at Schloss Leopoldskron, Salzburg, in 1954. EAAS is a registered association (VR 2037, Amtsgericht Stendal, 30 Sept. 2009). Each member association is represented on the EAAS Board which convenes once every year.

The objects and aims of EAAS are to encourage the study of and research in all areas of American culture and society and to promote cooperation and communication between European scholars of the United States from all parts of Europe and from various disciplines. To this end it organizes regular conferences. EAAS conferences are held every two years, and usually concentrate on a theme or a period.

EAAS Policy on Harassment

The European Association for American Studies fosters an environment of academic and intellectual exchange free from discrimination and harassment in whatever form. Our biennial conferences, Women’s and LGBTQ+ cauci, symposia, Board meetings, and other EAAS events are environments in which all members and participants are treated with equality and mutual respect.

We do not tolerate any behavior that results in individual colleagues feeling unsafe or threatened as a result of unwanted sexual attention, whether in person or virtually, or any form of intimidation or harassment based on disability, gender or gender expression, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, appearance or religious belief, whether in person or virtually.

Any and all instances of verbal or sexual harassment, unwelcome sexual attention, sexual coercion, in-person or online stalking, unsolicited physical contact, the use of professional status to coerce, threaten, or harass another colleague or participant, or any other threatening behaviors, in person, virtually or on social media, will result in the immediate removal of that individual from the event and the termination of their membership of the EAAS. Incidents can be reported, confidentially, to the EAAS Officers whose contact details are listed below

We pledge that all participants, members, students, guests, exhibitors, and related event- site vendors and staff be treated with dignity and respect. This policy applies in all EAAS event locations, venues, and spaces, whether physical or virtual.
