Welcome to the postgraduate section of the BAAS website! BAAS has a long history of supporting the UK-based American Studies postgraduate community.
From offering financial support postgraduate conferences to annual prizes for essays and research trips in the US and elsewhere, BAAS acknowledges the significant contributions made by postgraduates in sustaining and rejuvenating the multidisciplinary field of American Studies. In addition, through the election of a postgraduate representative to the Executive Committee, BAAS is able to respond to the real needs and concerns of postgraduates in the field. We offer concessionary membership fees and hold an annual postgraduate conference.
Postgraduate Representative: Emma Hall (University of Warwick)
Our annual postgraduate conference is designed to provide a supportive and encouraging environment where postgraduates and early career researchers can meet, forge connections, and share research. You can find details of the previous postgraduate conferences below:
