On the back of last year’s successful conference at Northumbria University, the Presidential History Network is holding a second conference, this time at University College London in collaboration with the Institute of the Americas. The Presidential History Network serves the academic needs of scholars interested in the presidency, individual presidents, the state, and corollary interests in the institutional, political, or cultural history of the American polity. Presidential studies, once considered “traditional political history” has been rehabilitated and the PHN aims to take advantage of the new era of political history.
With that aim in mind, this year’s event (27 March 2015) examines the American “national security” state in the twentieth century. The conference programme is now available and our speakers include Steve Long, Hugh Wilford, and James Boys.
Visitors to the conference can find details on getting to UCL here and if you have any questions please contact Prof. Iwan Morgan (firstname.lastname@example.org).
