Welcome to Transatlantic Studies

Welcome to the official home of the Transatlantic Studies Association (TSA)

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.

For details of the upcoming conference, please check the ‘Conference’ links above.
