CFP: East Coast/West Coast: Friends and Feuds | American Studies Association

The “East Coast/West Coast” rivalry, distinction, feud, or romance is a recurrent theme in American music and popular culture, most famously in hip hop, but also in rock, jazz, and other genres. How does this dynamic play out in other forms of popular culture, politics, and literature? This panel will enlarge on the East Coast/West Coast theme in relation to this year’s conference topic, “Home/Not Home: Centering American Studies Where We Are.” We will enlarge on the motif through interdisciplinary conversation, exploring it in relation to multiple genres and modes in U.S. culture, politics, economics, and/or other forms of life. All ideas and disciplines are welcome.

Please send the organizer a brief email saying who you are and what your interest in this topic is in advance of the deadline (i.e. right away).
