NEASA is …
--Our annual conference, a chance for scholars and writers and artists and activists and interested folks from every discipline and profession and community to come together and discuss some of the most significant national questions and topics, stories and identities, histories and futures. This year we’ll be at Boston University on March 10th and 11th discussing “Hoaxes, Humbugs, Pranks and Play"!
--This website, which is very much an in-development space. We’re hoping to add links to American Studies programs in the region, to historic sites and museums, to other organizations and conferences; and we’re also planning to start an online newsletter or blog, among other ways to make this site more dynamic and diverse. And all of those plans can be strengthened if you let me know what you’d like to see and find here, so send me an email with any thoughts or ideas!
--Finally, and most importantly, you. Whatever else we do and add, whatever our conferences and colloquia and website entail, at the end of the day NEASA is about the incredible community of scholars and writers and thinkers and readers and Americans whom we serve. So get involved—run for Council, come to the conference or colloquium, contribute to the site, add your voice and perspective to our mix in as many ways as you can and want to.
Thanks, and talk to you soon,
NEASA Council President
