The Austrian Association for American Studies (AAAS) is an academic non-profit organization that sets out to support American Studies in Austria at academic institutions and to promote transatlantic understanding.
Currently, the AAAS has more than 90 active members. They represent the Association at practically all Austrian universities and academic institutions with departments focusing on American Studies. The AAAS is a member of the European Association for American Studies (EAAS).
We organize an annual international conference that is thematically focussed in Austria. In addition, and in collaboration with other organizations and institutions such as Fulbright Austria, the AAAS supports promising projects and young researchers through grants and scholarly awards.
