UCD, Belfield, Dublin 4, Ireland | Director: Professor Liam Kennedy
The UCD Clinton Institute was established in 2003 to provide a focus for research and postgraduate teaching in the field of American Studies. It offers Masters and PhD degrees in the field and also runs a programme of activities devoted to advancing academic research and public discussion about the United States. Drawing on many disciplines the Institute offers a dynamic and wide-ranging coverage of American politics, culture and society.
Through our research, teaching and programme of conferences, seminars, international exchanges and scholarships the Institute promotes American Studies nationally and internationally. It works to bring together existing work on American themes at Irish universities, build international research networks, and also develop links with cultural, diplomatic and business organisations with interest in the US.
The Institute is ideally located to focus particular attention on transatlantic issues, including US relations with Irish and Western Europe. It provides researchers, teachers and policy-makers with a forum for understanding changing relations between the US and European nations in their historical complexity and in relations to contemporary ideological, political and intellectual debate.
