The Department of American Studies at the University of Sussex is pleased to announce the launch of the Marcus Cunliffe Centre for the Study of the American South. The Cunliffe Centre facilitates research in the social, political, economic, and cultural history of the American South from the colonial period (1600) to the present. The principal purpose of the Cunliffe Centre is to build upon this strength by enhancing research networks between scholars in the United Kingdom, Europe and the United States, and to provide channels for the transfer of knowledge in the field to the broader public.
The Cunliffe Centre will celebrate its launch by hosting Professor Eric Foner, Columbia University, who will give the inaugural Marcus Cunliffe Lecture in March 2008. Professor Foner's lecture will be accompanied by a compelling array of seminars in the new year featuring scholars from the United States and Europe, including Dr. Virginia Laas, Dr. Simon Wendt, Professor J. Mills Thornton, and Professor William Link. Please see below for further event details.
In addition to hosting colloquia, the Cunliffe Centre encourages proposals for postgraduate research at the DPhil and MPhil levels through the Department of American Studies.
For more details, please contact the Director of the Cunliffe Centre, Dr. Jarod Roll (firstname.lastname@example.org).
