Research Seminar: Richard Martin

This Wednesday, it's the first AMS research seminar of the semester, and it's something a little out of the ordinary. Richard Martin (Birkbeck) is currently undertaking a research project sponsored by the British Association for American Studies. From the BAAS website:

American Studies in the UK, 2000-2010The British Association for American Studies, in association with the Fulbright Commission, is embarking on an important new research project tracing the development of American Studies in the UK between 2000 and 2010. The project will produce a contemporary census document and a historical resource for future scholars.
Alongside statistical data, the report will also include commentary and case studies, involving a wide range of voices and experiences. Contributions are therefore invited from all sections of the American Studies community in the UK, including researchers, lecturers, administrators, teachers and students. Contributors are asked to respond to the central question: In what ways did American Studies in the UK change between 2000 and 2010?
Accordingly, on Wednesday, Richard will be talking about "American Studies in the U.K., 2000-2011." Should be a good one. All welcome.

Wednesday October 12, 3 pm, Arts 2.84.
