British Studies at The University of Texas

The British Studies program at the University of Texas at Austin was created in 1975. For more than thirty years the program has sponsored public lectures in English literature, history, and government, and has conducted a weekly seminar called the Faculty Seminar on British Studies that includes faculty members, graduate students, undergraduates, and members of the Austin community. British Studies serves a further basic purpose of providing visiting scholars at the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center an opportunity to talk on the subject of their research, and of encouraging discussion of work-in-progress among participants in the program. The three main disciplines are literature, history, and political science, but all of the humanities and social sciences are represented.
