The Eastern American Studies Association (EASA) and the Society of Americanists (SOA) presents “Shall Not be Denied: Rights in American Discourse and Culture” as their joint international meeting on March 27–28, 2020 at Ramapo College, located in Mahwah, New Jersey.

The conference theme references the one hundredth anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920. While many Americans are reminded this centennial year of the fight for women’s suffrage and other social movements using the concept of “rights,” the organizers of the conference further observe that the rhetoric of rights has entered popular parlance and has been variously used through the American experience. These have included struggles over citizenship, equality, political participation, expression, cultural inclusion, and many others. The conference location calls us to reflect on the experiences of the Ramapough Lunaape who continue to demand full civil rights, recognition, and sovereignty.

The keynote speaker will be Chief Vincent Mann, Turtle Clan Chief of the Ramapough Lunaape Nation.

Proposals for presentations are being accepted between December 15, 2019–January 15, 2020. For more information on the call for papers, see the AFS Review.
