Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin





Two calls for papers to students of American studies and related fields

aspeers, the first and currently only MA-level peer-reviewed journal for American studies in Europe, will accept submissions by October 16, 2022.


This is an opportunity to get published early on in your career and to gain experience with the process of publishing academic work.

In its sixteenth issue, aspeers will feature a general section and a topical one. While the general section accepts submissions on any American studies topic (e.g. revised versions of term papers or chapters from theses), the topical section will focus on the theme "American Apocalypses," calling for submissions that explore US literature, (popular) culture, society, history, politics, and media through the lens of the apocalypse (or apocalypses).

Please find the two calls for papers and more information at
