Description

Founded in 1974, holding its first conference in January 1975 at the University of Keele, The American Politics Group is the major professional organisation for the researchers and teachers in the UK whose work concentrates on the government and politics of the USA. Membership is not restricted to the UK, and APG conferences regularly attract the involvement of trans-Atlantic and European colleagues.

The Group holds an annual 3-day conference in January, an annual colloquium hosted at the US Embassy in London in November, and various other events. In recent years the members have raised money to establish an intermittent programme of travel awards for UK postgraduate students.

The PSA’s network of 60 Specialist Groups offers a research focus for all members and covers a vast range of specialities within the discipline. SGs provide an opportunity for groups of academics who share a common interest in a particular area of the discipline to organise meetings, coordinate communications, and as outlets for research – as well as giving PSA members opportunities for developing their academic impact and professional development.”
