The Centre for American Studies

Discover America - its past, its present and what its future may hold. Study its history, examine its politics and discuss the influence of American culture. If the 20th century was 'the American century', what will America's role be in the years ahead?

The Centre for American Studies at The University of Kent is a vibrant postgraduate research centre dedicated to the interdisciplinary study of the United States and Latin America.

We provide a welcoming, supportive and stimulating environment, which is guaranteed to further any interests you already have in American culture, history, politics or literatures. You will also discover new and exciting areas of study from American art to race relations – we believe that the USA is uniquely well suited to integrated, multidisciplinary study and our research programmes reflect this.
