We are an active group, with events key to our goal of providing a forum for the discussion of all aspects of American Politics.

Our two largest events are our Annual Conference and our Colloquium.

In 2022-23 we have delivered the Unfolding Our Shared Future talk series, with support from host universities, the British Association of American Studies and the US Embassy in London.

We also run ad-hoc events. Subscribe to our newsletter for information about them.

Annual Conference

Held every year since the early 1970s, our conference is hosted by a different institution each year. In 2024, our 50th annual conference will be hosted by Queen Mary University of London.

Held at the British Library, our annual colloquium brings together keynote speakers, former members of Congress, academics, practitioners, journalists, and others interested in US politics for lively discussions and debates around current issues driving the US political system.
