The American Studies Colloquium Series presents new research in American Studies. It brings together both junior and senior scholars from different national contexts, and addresses topics ranging from cultural readings of poetry through environmental history to security studies.

The Colloquium Series is primarily geared toward American Studies scholars and students, but all talks are open to the interested public.

The Colloquium Series talks occur on selected Thursdays at 4pm in room 317 at the American Studies Center unless noted otherwise.
