April 6, 2017 - April 8, 2017


The 62nd Annual British Association for American Studies conference will take place 6-8 April, 2017, at Canterbury Christ Church University.

The Annual BAAS Conference brings together scholars from all across the world to speak on any subject related to furthering our understanding of the United States. Delegates are warmly invited to attend a diverse range of papers and roundtables by specialists in American history, culture, literature, politics, art, film, and any combination of the above.
