CRITICAL JUNCTURES: America and its Crises

America is currently suffering through a severe economic recession,
accompanied by political and cultural turmoil of all kinds. But
pandemic crises of this sort are not rare in the history of the
republic. CHASA is now inviting proposals for papers and panels from
any disciplinary perspective that will address any of the cultural,
social or political-economic aspects of such critical moments in
America, contemporary or historical.

Please send 150 word individual paper proposals and a brief bio as MS
Word attachments to chasa@gmu.edu

Proposals for panels will be accepted and should be 1 page maximum. We
welcome a range of panel formats, but all panels should fit within a
75-minute time frame with at least 15 minutes dedicated to audience
discussion.

Graduate students are especially encouraged to attend and present
papers and a prize will be given to the best student paper given at
the conference.

The deadline for proposals is January 14th, 2011.

George Mason University is located in Fairfax Virginia, approximately
15 miles from downtown Washington DC. For details, please visit www.gmu.edu
