New Perspectives on the American Presidency is designed to take advantage of the revival in presidential studies in the UK and the world, and the growth of cross-disciplinary scholarship that has added countless interpretations from a wider cast of “supporting actors” in political history.
Modern British Studies at Birmingham invites proposals for panels showcasing new research on all aspects of British history from the 18th century to the present. At a moment when many of the core strands of modern society, culture, politics, and economics have been called into question, it is time to explore how we make sense of Britain’s past and the value of thinking historically in public life.
