American and Canadian Studies

The department of American and Canadian Studies welcomes proposals for postgraduate research. We have long-standing experience in supervising PhDs to successful completion with over 75 PhD students having graduated from the department since 2000. While our research focuses on North America, work in the Department reflects and leads a growing transnational agenda, examining the exchange of influences between North American cultures and those of Asia, Europe and the Americas. Research students are encouraged to think about America in a global context.
