About SASA

The Southern American Studies Association is the largest regional chapter of the American Studies Association (U.S.A.). SASA presents new developments and findings in American Studies scholarship, identifies and defines areas of debate about the nature of American culture and its study, and conducts cultural and historical programs on the South and its communities. SASA holds a biennial conference, with recent meetings at College of Charleston (2013), Georgia State University (2011), and George Mason University (2009). Conference themes are broad and inclusive to encompass such topics as art and architecture, black literature and music, American Studies as cultural critique, the cultural uses of photography, Native American Studies, popular culture, Southern literature and women’s studies.
