The Program in American Studies enjoys a strong community of graduate students from the departments of English, history, art and archaeology, religion, and anthropology, among others, who join in inquiry across disciplines. They are active participants in our noon workshop series where they engage with scholars’ works in progress, and in the Graduate Salon where they share their own works in progress with peers and faculty. They organize the annual American studies graduate student conference.
The program supports graduate students by offering funding for research at various stages of their careers at Princeton and for further training in interdisciplinary studies. Our graduate student affiliates are interested in interdisciplinarity as research practice and as pedagogy.
