CFP: aspeers

Long time-friends of Containing Multitudes aspeers have got in touch with their new CFP. For those who aren't familiar, aspeers is:
the first and currently only peer-reviewed print journal for MA-level American studies scholars in Europe. It is a platform for the best work done by American studies graduate students below the PhD level. It aims to foster academic exchange among young Americanists across Europe, and to thereby advance the field as well as its genuine European perspective on ‘America’ and its presences and effects around the world. In addition to a general section, aspeers features a topical one that brings academic and creative works into a dialogue on one common theme.

So pay attention, postgrads. More from the CFP below.
