Welcome to Transatlantic Studies

Welcome to the official home of the Transatlantic Studies Association.

The TSA was created in 2001 to bring together those scholars for whom the ‘transatlantic’ is an important frame of reference: historians, political scientists and International Relations, sociologists, cultural and literary theorists. Since its establishment the Association has become a significant multi-disciplinary venue and network, and its annual conference attracts a broad cross-section of scholars from across North America, Latin America, and Europe.

TSA 2018 Panels: Transnational Transatlantic Relations 

Proposals are invited for papers exploring transatlantic relations through the realm of the transnational (i.e. links and interactions between Europe and the Americas taking place via groups and individuals operating at the sub-state level). Papers stemming from a variety of disciplinary perspectives are encouraged – taking in politics, economics, literature, religion and more.

Papers on this theme will be organised into one or more panels to be presented at the TSA 2018 conference, taking place at the University of North Georgia. Papers presented in these panels will be considered for publication in a special edition of the Journal of Transatlantic Studies planned for publication in mid-2020.

Please submit proposals (including a 300-word abstract and a brief CV) to Dr Thomas Mills, University of Lancaster: t.c.mills@lancaster.ac.uk
