The Transatlantic Studies Association (TSA) celebrates its 15th anniversary in 2016, and for such an occasion it is appropriate that we open the conference on 4 July, and that the location is Plymouth, the last place of contact with England for the Pilgrim Fathers before they set sail across the Atlantic in 1620.

Established in 2002, the TSA is a broad network of scholars who use the ‘transatlantic’ as a frame of reference for their work in political, economic, cultural, historical, environmental, literary, and IR/security studies.

Keynote lectures

  • The Mayflower Lecture, delivered by Professor Mary Nolan from New York University and supported by the BAAS/US Embassy Small Grants Program: The End of the American Century? The End of the European Project? Reflections on the Origins of the Current Crises
  • The Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations (SHAFR) Keynote Lecture by Barbara Keys, University of Melbourne: Friendship in Diplomacy: Henry Kissinger's Personal Relationships
  • The TSA Keynote Lecture by Fionnghuala Sweeney, University of Newcastle: A Transatlantic Cultural Front? Black Diasporan London between the War

Plenary roundtable

The State of the Art: the United States and Transatlantic Relations as an Academic Field (with representatives from BAAS, HOTCUS, BrANCH, USFPWG, APG, Eccles Centre).

As an optional extra, delegates can also attend the conference dinner at the National Marine Aquarium on Tuesday 5 July. This includes a three course meal, drinks and a tour of the aquarium. The conference dinner can be purchased as an extra option when buying your ticket.
