2020 EAAS Conference — Virtual, April 30-May 2, 2021
20/20 vision: Citizenship, Space, Renewal
Due to COVID-19, this conference has been rescheduled to April 30-May 2, 2021. The theme of the conference remains unchanged.
EAAS 2020 Conference coincides with the 400th anniversary of the establishment of the Plymouth Plantation. Falling on the quadricentennial, EAAS 2020 invites broader contemplations of American history, politics, and culture. The conference seeks to underscore questions of optics, distance, and acuity. The concept of “20/20 vision,” an optical term denoting “normal” visual clarity and sharpness of sight, invites a reflection on historical distance, focal points, visibility and invisibility of socio-historical, cultural, and literary aspects of American citizenship, space, and renewal until today.
