EAAS 60th Anniversary Conference, The Hague
The 2014 European Association for American Studies (EAAS) conference will also mark the 60th anniversary of the EAAS, and we will celebrate this event with a total of 30 workshops as well as – for the first time in EAAS history – student panels and student poster presentations.
The frame for the conference will be set by three eminent keynote speakers: Richard Carwardine (Rhodes Professor of American History, Oxford, and President of Corpus Christi College Oxford, GB); William Leahy (Director of the Office of Indigent Legal Services, New York, USA); and Willem van Genugten (Professor of International Law, Tilburg University, The Netherlands, and former Dean of The Hague’s Institute for Global Justice). In addition, the program will feature the first-hand report of a war correspondent in the former Yugoslavia and a prosecutor at the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia. Apart from a richly filled academic program, participants will also have the opportunity to take part in a guided “Peace and Justice” tour of the city; moreover, there will be organized tours to the Peace Palace, the Humanity House, and the Yugoslavia Tribunal, as well as to a wide range of art museums and historical places in the vicinity of The Hague.
