Current Objectives of Postgraduate American Studies

COPAS—Current Objectives of Postgraduate American Studies is an open access, peer-reviewed e-journal dedicated to publishing research by early career Americanists. It was launched as an easy-to-access platform for scholarly exchange following the 1999 PGF conference in Regensburg, helped by funds from the Bayerische Amerika-Akademie. True to its original mission, COPAS showcases the work of early career scholars in the field with an annual issue featuring articles based on contributions from the latest PGF conference. In 2013, the journal’s scope expanded to include guest-edited thematic issues—proposals are welcome at any time! Currently, Cedric Essi, Paula von Gleich, Stephen Koetzing, Samira Spatzek, and Gesine Wegner edit and publish COPAS. The journal is hosted and supported by the University of Regensburg.
