The AFEA organizes an Annual Conference at a French University. The theme and location of the Conference is voted at the General Assembly.

Graduate Student Symposium

The Graduate Student Symposium is held every year, on the day before the AFEA annual conference. Doctoral students in American Studies from all over France give presentations based on their research before other young researchers and a panel of academics specialized in their particular field. The format encourages discussion and exchange in a less formal setting than the official convention workshops. Students do not present a paper as such but an outline based upon an excerpt or chapter of their dissertation stressing the state of advancement of their research and their specific approach. They are advised to formulate any difficulties they may have encountered in their research and writing.

Doctoral candidates are then invited by the AFEA to remain to attend the conference.
