58th International Congress of Americanists (ICA2025)

Welcome to the 58th edition of the International Congress of Americanists ICA2025
celebrating its first
150 years of existence

Nancy, France 1875 – Novi Sad, Serbia 2025

The Organizing Committee of the 58th International Congress of Americanists (ICA) warmly welcomes the worldwide academic community and extends a most cordial invitation for the participation in the 58th ICA edition to be held in Novi Sad, Serbia, from 30 June to 4 July 2025.

The motto of the 58th ICA: “New challenges, New spaces” is intended as a prompt to reflect on contemporary reality on a global scale and to develop viable theoretical and practical proposals to face the disturbing current challenges in all areas of our social existence. To mention just a few examples, the issues of cognitive capitalism, the proliferation of digital devices and the dominance of the infosphere; increasing migratory movements; global financial instability, the deterioration of democracy and human rights; the spread of violence in all its forms; new trends in the field of arts and humanities; The threats posed by climate change and the spread of infectious or other diseases are topics that, together with the other fields of knowledge traditionally present in our Congresses, will allow us to analyze, from a multidisciplinary and pluralistic perspective, a wide range of topics, phenomena and processes typical of social sciences, humanities and related disciplines. The central theme of the 58th ICA is intended as a common denominator in order to provide the necessary space to accommodate all the thematic axes that are proposed in this First Circular. For us, it is of vital importance that on this occasion we can add a Balkan perspective to Americanism, thus enriching the great variety of hermeneutical perspectives around the topics that will be discussed at the Congress.

The Organizing Committee of the 58th ICA would like to take this opportunity to express its immense gratitude to the Permanent Committee and the General Assembly of the 57th ICA, held in Foz de Iguazu, Brazil, for having trusted Serbia and granting the city of Novi Sad the privilege of hosting the International Congress of Americanists. Organizing an event of this magnitude is a great honor for us and, of course, a challenge that we will meet with great enthusiasm and firm commitment. We are convinced that we will be able to continue the organizational quality, innovation and impact achieved in the Congresses that have preceded us.

The headquarters of the 58th ICA will be the University of Novi Sad (UNS), located on the banks of the Danube River in a central area of the city. The University campus is an architecturally compact area that allows for easy and quick internal transportation, less than a kilometer from the historical center of the city where most of the hotel, gastronomic and cultural offerings of Novi Sad are located. The Nikola Tesla international airport in Belgrade is less than an hour away on the highway that connects the two most important cities in the country. The airports of Timisoara, Budapest and Vienna are also not too far away.

It is noteworthy that the University of Novi Sad and the co-organizing faculties of the Congress – the Faculty of Philosophy and its Ibero-American Center CIBAM, the Faculty of Technical Sciences, the Faculty of Sciences and the Faculty of Technology – have the necessary infrastructure that fully meets the requirements for this type of events.

Welcome to Novi Sad, Serbia, the Balkans!
