American & New England Studies Graduate Student Association

The American & New England Studies Graduate Student Association was founded in the spring of 2012 to meet a growing desire for greater community networking and support, to foster collegiality and creative thinking, and to represent student interests in an official manner to the university as well as to the larger community of American Studies graduate programs and scholars both here and abroad.

The GSA hosts programs to support community, scholarship, and professional development. These include a graduate-undergraduate mentorship program, the Americanist Forum, social events that engage both our own AMNESP community and our broader worlds, a biennial American Studies student conference, and a series of workshops aimed at professional development, navigating the terrain of graduate school and thinking through our role as scholars within the academy and beyond.
