Dear fellow EAAS members,

We are pleased to announce the following funding opportunity:

Call for Applications: Partial Funding for Salzburg Global Seminar American Studies Program (18-22 September, 2024)

EAAS was officially founded at Schloss Leopoldskron in April 1954. This year marks our 70th anniversary, and we are proud to be able to offer this funding opportunity. Excellent early career researchers may apply for partial funding (1000 Euros) for the 2024 Salzburg Global Seminar American Studies Program “Crossing the Pacific: The Asian American Experience in U.S. Society and Discourse.”

The current standard rate to attend the American Studies Program is $6,000. The Salzburg Global Seminar (SGS) agreed to charge the EAAS nominee a reduced fee of $1,320, of which €1,000 would come from EAAS. The EAAS nominee will need to cover the remaining $250, subject to current exchange rates, as well as their travel expenses to and from Salzburg. However, they may also apply for additional funding from sources outside EAAS to cover these costs.

This year’s American Studies Program will explore the long history of Asian and Pacific Islander communities in the United States. We will examine their experiences with an eye toward lessons they might provide on the future and what they can contribute to understanding the evolving dynamics within the United States and, in the context of growing concern about potential conflicts between “East and West”, what this will mean for the future of Asian and Pacific Islander communities in the United States.

To apply, please send a CV and cover letter, including a brief description (300–500 words) of how participation in the seminar  would be helpful and relevant to your research, to Ingrid Gessner: Ingrid.Gessner@ph-vorarlberg.ac.at

Deadline for submission is July 15, 2024.

The EAAS Officers
