Professor Brian Ward Elected Chair of British Association for American Studies

The History and American Studies programmes at Northumbria University are pleased to announce that Professor Brian Ward has been elected Chair of the British Association for American Studies (BAAS).  Founded in 1955, BAAS is this country’s leading learned society that focusses on the study of the United States.  

Brian will serve a three year term and will be working closely with universities, colleges, schools, and independent scholars  to promote the aims of the association in partnership with a range of external bodies, including the American Embassy and the Eccles Centre (British Library).   Contrary to all  rumours, his election to this office had nothing to do with his claret and blue allegiance and everything to do with his reputation as a world-leading scholar of American History and American Studies!  

Well done Brian!
