Crossing Borders/Crossing Centuries. Joint Annual Meeting of the ASACAAS , Montreal, Quebec, 28-31 October, 1999. The ASAAnnual Meeting is open to anyone having an interdisciplinary interest in the study of American cultures. The theme of the meeting is "Crossing Borders/Crossing Centuries." In choosing this theme, the Program Committee celebrates the fact that the American Studies Association is crossing United States national borders to hold its annual meeting in Montreal and meets for the fourth time in conjunction with the Canadian Association for American Studies. We also celebrate the tradition that has always distinguished American Studies scholarship: its willingness to cross disciplinary borders and to venture outside conventional definitions of scholarly practice. We note that the end of a century invites retrospective thinking as we cross a temporal border. Finally , this title suggests our desire to encourage comparatist thinking of every sort: cross-disciplinary, cross-cultural, cross-national, cross-temporal. We challenge participants to reflect on the significance of American Studies scholarly traditions and to project the directions our work, collectively and individually, will take in the next century. Since border crossing also implies responsibility to those whose borders we have crossed, we hope that this meeting will advance the discussion of the past few years about the public dimension of our scholarship, from engagement in local and national issues to cooperation with colleagues teaching in secondary schools. And we hope that the meeting will afford an oppor- 158 Canadian Review of American Studies RevueCtmadtenne d'etudes americaines tunity to cross generational borders within the academy, bringing senior scholars into dialogue with younger colleagues working in newer fields.
