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.

Announcement: The Folio Academy Sessions


Saturday 18 June - Sunday 19 June, British Library Conference Centre, book online: http://www.bl.uk/events/the-folio-academy-sessions

For the third year running, the Folio Prize Foundation and the British Library host some of the world’s finest writers and their guests. Sponsored by The Eccles Centre for American Studies, this year’s line-up includes a range of authors for eight panel discussions including Caryl Philips on 'A Place Called Home', and Roger Roberts on 'The Authenticity Paradox.'

Over eight sessions each programmed by a different member of the Folio Prize Academy, the weekend will explore how stories have the power to transform us: how they can impact individuals and effect social change. Tickets can be purchased for individual events or day and weekend passes.
