After the success of the first Conference “Messengers from the Stars”, organized in 2010, we announce a second conference dedicated to this subject.

23-24 November, 2012 – New University of Lisbon
The full programme with abstracts and details can be found here.
In a time of crisis such as our own, marked by anxieties over war, terrorism, and the economy, we are however forced to ask: how do English and American Studies matter in our particular context? As critical discourses, what power do they own? In what ways can our scholarly discourses cope with the present culture, marked as it is by financial deprivation, professional uncertainty, and political instability? In other words, as young scholars, how do we understand and position our study and research?
The American Studies research group at ULICES (University of Lisbon, Center for English Studies) will offer an interdisciplinary space of discussion for researchers, teachers, students, independent scholars and professionals associated with the cinema industry.
