2020 EAAS Conference — 20/20 vision

2020 EAAS Conference - April 30-May 2, 2021

20/20 vision: Citizenship, Space, Renewal

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.

COVID-19 Update:

This conference has been rescheduled for the weekend of April 30-May 2, 2021. The conference will be held virtually with more technical details to follow.

The theme of the conference remains unchanged. New proposals will be accepted and considered. Presenters accepted for the May 2020 presentations do not need to resubmit an abstract but will need to complete the submission form confirming their willingness to participate.

The submission portal opens on December 10, 2020 and closes on January 10, 2021.

The registration fee will be 180 PLN (ca. 40 Euro) for regular participants and 120 PLN (ca. 25 Euro) for graduate students. If you had paid the early registration fee earlier in 2020 and decided not to withdraw it, we will reimburse you the difference.
