Day 4

The trip reached its climax on Thursday, which was the day of the conference. The group gathered on the Main Campus of the NYU to listen to and discuss the students’ presentations loosely divided into 5 panels: Transatlantic Relationships, Climate & Energy, Globalization, Politics and Media, and Transatlanticism. The students from the American Studies Center presented papers on topics as diverse as the Transatlantic implications of President Trump’s travel ban (A. Rabenda), the relationship between the discourse of 2016 elections and fictional TV narratives (F. Boratyn), the connection between the #metoo movement and the recent political shift towards the far right (A. Ziemińska), as well as Postatlanticism (E. Pilkiewicz). Overall, the conference has been an opportunity for exposure to research topics from many different disciplines and an impressive overview of the variety of academic perspectives brought together by the concept of Transatlanticism.
