We've been holding back on this post - our 200th - in order to make an announcement. The School of American Studies at the University of East Anglia is going to be hosting the 2010 British Association for American Studies Conference, taking place 8-11 April 2010. You'll be hearing more about this as plans develop. For now, you can find out more information about the conference on the official site: http://www.uea.ac.uk/ams/baas2010. Whilst there, you can take a look at the call for papers - the deadline for paper proposals is October 16, 2009. You can also download a copy of the already-iconic conference poster - thanks to Jawa and Midwich for the amazing design. Display it proudly and help publicise BAAS 2010. See you all there.
