For almost a decade now, the Princeton University Program in American Studies has supported graduate students in organizing cross-disciplinary conferences that bring in leading scholars as keynote speakers and provide opportunity for graduate students to present their research.
This year’s conference will explore rural spaces, places, and people throughout American history and the present. The conference brings together graduate students from many disciplines and institutions to ask interdisciplinary questions of the social, cultural, legal, political and intellectual experience of rural life.
The conference is open to the public, and on-site registration begins at 1:30PM on Friday, March 25. You can find the schedule, information about the keynote speakers and faculty commentators, abstracts of selected papers, and programming details at the conference website: https://princetonamsconference2016.wordpress.com.
