The Association for the Advancement of Dutch-American Studies will be hosting its 24th bi-annual conference on June 29 – July 1, 2023 at Trinity Christian College in Palos Heights, Illinois.
For this conference, we seek papers that consider the role of identity and belonging in the history of Dutch America. How have Dutch Americans come together in different places and different times, to nurture and express shared identity? How have they formed associations and institutions that reflect these identities? How has gender, geography, ethnic festivals, and published literature shaped who belongs to the group? The association would be pleased to receive paper proposals on the connections between Dutch Americans and Dutch Canadians, and between Dutch Americans and other ethnic groups in the United States. Papers and panels on other topics will also be considered.
If you would like to present a paper at this conference, please send a 1-page CV and a 250-word abstract describing your topic to Michael Douma, the President of AADAS, at firstname.lastname@example.org, sometime before January 15th, 2023. A committee of the association’s board will then decide on papers to accept for the event.
