The American Studies Research Portal (ASRP) is now live and is a free online resource for researchers working on topics related to the United States. The Portal allows users to search a database of links to UK American Studies experts, researchers, university departments and UK research library collections and archives with a significant United States focus. The site also provides access to a range of electronic research resources.

Research areas covered by the ASRP include both humanities and social science subjects. The Portal contains a mixture of created content and links to other UK American Studies sites. It also offers a keyword search facility which allows the researcher to explore the site and access a range of resources on a specific topic, for example ‘African-American History’ or ‘Women Writers’.

You can have your professional details listed on the ASRP. If you are a postgraduate student, take a look to see if you are listed on the database.

A list of postgraduate theses taken from the ASRP database will be published annually in the Spring edition of American Studies in Britain: The BAAS Newsletter.
