American Studies

Coordinator: Martyn Bone

The Center for Transnational American Studies (CTAS) and related American Studies platform bring together a cohort of research-active staff and PhD students whose interests encompass a range of American studies topics.

Since 2013, American Studies platform activities have been primarily focused around two themes: “American Cultures of Work” and “Place in American Culture.” These themes have included significant collaboration with our American studies research network partners: the University of Manchester, the University of Mississippi, and Brown University.

The American Studies platform also hosts Duncan and Goddard’s “Contemporary America Project” which expands the scope and interconnections of American Studies from the transnational to the global.
