The Prizes Sub-Committee is delighted to announce that it has awarded two bursaries for attendance at the annual Postgraduate Symposium.


The bursaries have been awarded to Jennifer Gouck (independent scholar) for her paper, “‘Welcome to Your Tape’: Union and Disunion in Jay Asher’s Thirteen Reasons Why,” and to Annette Skade (DCU) for her paper “Clive’s Song by Anne Carson: Pushing the Limits.” The Prizes Sub-Committee and everyone at the IAAS would like to extend their sincere congratulations to the winners.


The 2017 IAAS Postgraduate Symposium is hosted by the Trinity Long Room Hub in Trinity College Dublin, on 25th November. This is an annual event designed to foster and promote the work currently being undertaken in American Studies by postgraduate students and early-career scholars, throughout Ireland and beyond.
