About the Program

The underlying purpose of the Anglo-American Studies Program is to widen and deepen campus interest and knowledge of British affairs and their implications for the United States. 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 the United Kingdom. In addition, the program offers the R. Kirk Underhill Graduate Fellowship

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