Information for Graduate Students

Graduate students in all departments of the University are encouraged to consider the Program in American Studies a resource for interdisciplinary work. Our aim is to become a site for conversations about matters American – including America in the world and the world in America – within the humanities and social sciences. Graduate students may consult with the Program Director or members of our Executive Committee regarding interdisciplinary interests.


Graduate Students are encouraged to attend the ongoing Workshop in American Studies

For information on  Grad Salons, see here.


The AMS Library in 43 McCosh Hall is available for research and reading. Meetings of small groups may be scheduled in the Library. Contact the Program staff to schedule.
