More on the conference:

The 60th annual conference of the British Association for American Studies (BAAS) will be hosted by the Department of Humanities at Northumbria University, Newcastle, 9-12 April, 2015.

The British Association for American Studies was founded in 1955. It exists to promote, support and encourage the study of the United States in the Universities, Colleges and Schools of the United Kingdom, and by independent scholars. The 2015 conference commemorates the 60th anniversary of the founding of BAAS and promises to be a hugely stimulating and enjoyable occasion. We look forward to welcoming you to Newcastle upon Tyne, the most vibrant urban centre in the North East of England.

The conference will begin after lunch on Thursday April 9, and will close after lunch on Sunday April 12.

We are delighted to announce our plenary speakers:

• Gary Younge. Author, broadcaster and award-winning columnist for The Guardian and The Nation.

• Dana Nelson. Gertrude Conaway Vanderbilt Professor of English, Vanderbilt University.

• Sarah Churchwell. Professor of American Literature and Public Understanding of the Humanities, University of East Anglia
