Anglo-American Studies Program

In 2023, the Anglo-American Studies Program joined the Institute of European Studies and its Center for British Studies. The underlying purpose of the Program is to widen and deepen campus interest and knowledge of British political, legal, and cultural affairs and their implications for the United States and the broader Commonwealth of Nations.

The program supports faculty and graduate student research, conducts scholarly conferences, and features an annual R. Kirk Underhill lecture at UC Berkeley by a leading figure from political or scholarly circles.

In addition, the program offers the R. Kirk Underhill Graduate Fellowships

The Program is funded by a generous gift made in December 2012 from the Anglo-California Foundation in memory of R. Kirk Underhill.
