Join us in Plymouth for the 2016 Annual Meeting 4th-6th July 2016
Welcome to the official home of the Transatlantic Studies Association (TSA)
The TSA was created in 2001 to bring together those scholars for whom the ‘transatlantic’ is an important frame of reference: historians, political scientists and International Relations, sociologists, cultural and literary theorists. Since its establishment the Association has become a significant multi-disciplinary venue and network, and its annual conference attracts a broad cross-section of scholars from across North America, Latin America, and Europe.

Call for Papers: 'Cold War Geographies'
The Eccles Centre for American Studies, The British Library, London Monday 16 January 2017
Keynote Speaker: Professor Klaus Dodds, Professor of Geopolitics, Royal Holloway
The British Library’s next major exhibition will focus on ‘Maps and the Twentieth Century.’ The Cold War had a seismic impact on global geographies during the second half of the twentieth century. Not only did it physically impact lands from the barren Nevada desert to the jungles of South East Asia, but the ideological conflict of the Cold War also had a significant impact on national borders, global cities and imagined geographies. The legacy of the Cold war on global geographies has had a profound effect upon the way in which nations now think about their place in the world and their relationships with each other. From an American point of view, this has had a particular influence on how the U.S. is viewed and engaged with on an international level.
This one-day symposium seeks to explore and assess how the Cold War changed boundaries, restructured terrain and redefined concepts of space and place. In doing so it seeks to prompt discussion and assessment of the geopolitical impact this had, particularly on the United States.
This is an interdisciplinary symposium, both panel and paper proposals are welcomed from across the disciplines, including, but not limited to, geography, politics, history, visual culture and American Studies. Papers which make use of the Library’s collections are particularly encouraged.
Possible topics could include:
The politics of space and place
Legacies of Cold War conflict
The evolution of Cold War cities
Borders and borderlands
Aesthetic and cultural responses to contested geographies
Issues of decolonisation and western-centrism
Dark geographies and covert spaces
Cold War cartographies
Changing global narratives
The impact and legacy of nuclear testing
Technologies of mapping and surveillance
Proposals of no more than 250 words should be sent to Mark Eastwood by the deadline of midnight on Sunday 27th November 2016. All submissions should include the name of the presenter, their institution, email address, a short profile, and the title of the proposed presentation. Proposals from PGs and ECRs are warmly welcomed.
