American Studies Association

The American Studies student club, which is officially named the American Studies Association (ASA) of Western, aims to provide a place for students interested in American Studies to discuss and explore the North American cultural, political, and social identity, while serving as a point of contact between faculty and students. The club provides a social and academic platform for students to enrich their understanding, explore their interests, and participate in events and activities. Undergraduate and graduate students welcome. Please contact Department Reps Eric de Roos or Arielle Stiriling if you would like more information about the club.
