Important Announcement on NAAS 2021

(September 12, 2020)
We regret to inform you that due to the pandemic, the NAAS 2021 conference in Uppsala has been cancelled. It will be replaced by a special one-day online symposium, the topic of which will be announced shortly

The regular NAAS 2023 conference will be held in Uppsala, and the submitted proposals for the conference in 2021 will automatically be considered for 2023, if submitters so wish. This late announcement comes after careful consideration of the current travel restrictions to and in Sweden and predictions for the situation in the spring. The decision has been made jointly by the organizing committee in Uppsala and the boards of the Swedish Association for American Studies (SAAS) and the Nordic Association for American Studies (NAAS).

We are, of course, very sad to have to make this decision. But we encourage you to join the replacement online symposium in May, and are very eager to welcome you all, in person, to a full and exciting conference in Uppsala in 2023.

On behalf of SAAS and NAAS,

the NAAS 2021 organizing committee
