The twenty-first HCA Spring Academy on American Culture, Economics, Geography, History, Literature, Politics, and Religion will be held from March 18-22, 2024. The Heidelberg Center for American Studies (HCA) invites applications for this annual one-week conference that provides twenty international Ph.D. students with the opportunity to present and discuss their Ph.D. projects.
In order to bring postgraduate students together and offer them a venue for extensive discussions, the HCA initiated the Spring Academy in 2004. The previous HCA Spring Academy conferences have effectively established an international network of young and aspiring researchers in different fields of American Studies.
We would like to ask for your help in making next year’s HCA Spring Academy known at your institution and especially to Ph.D. students who might be interested in taking part in the HCA Spring Academy 2024. Please find attached the Call for Papers, which includes more detailed information on the Spring Academy 2024. The application deadline is November 15, 2023. Further information and the online application form are available on our website https://www.hca.uni-heidelberg.de/spring/index_en.html.
