Dear Sir or Madam:


The Heidelberg Center for American Studies (HCA) invites applications from international Ph.D. students for its fourteenth annual HCA Spring Academy conference on American History, Culture, and Politics. The conference will take place in Heidelberg, Germany, from March 20 to March 24, 2017.


In order to bring postgraduate students together and offer them a venue for extensive discussions, the HCA initiated the Spring Academy in 2004. The previous thirteen HCA Spring Academy conferences have effectively established an international network of young and aspiring researchers in different fields of American Studies.


We would like to ask for your help in making next year’s HCA Spring Academy known at your institution and especially to Ph.D. students who might be interested in taking part in the HCA Spring Academy 2017. Please find attached the Call for Papers, which includes more detailed information on the Spring Academy 2017.


Further information and the online application form are available from August 15 on, at: or on the homepage of the HCA


Thank you in advance for your help.
