Our History

SAAS Young Scholars, the Graduate and Early-Career Network of the Spanish Association for American Studies, was founded in 2021 by a group of seven junior researchers from six Spanish institutions (Universidad de Salamanca, Universidad de Alcalá de Henares – Instituto Franklin, Universidad de Valladolid, Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Universidad de La Laguna, and Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, respectively). It was their wish to bring together the youngest members of the SAAS family in a series of events, activities, and initiatives that helped them learn together, and build community.

SAAS Young Scholars aims to open up a forum for the exchange of scientific knowledge among early-career Americanists. If you are a young researcher working on the field, join us to discuss all things American Studies!
