UCL is building on its existing strength in teaching and research on the Americas by establishing the UCL Institute of the Americas. UCL Americas will offer five new

The History Department will have a particularly close relationship with the new Institute.  The postgraduate courses taught by our Latin American and US specialists will also feature in the new Institute’s postgraduate programmes.  Conversely, History courses taught by UCLAmericas staff will be available to our MA students.  In addition, Institute staff will offer undergraduate courses on the department’s BA programme.  Next year, Professor Morgan will offer a half unit course Richard Nixon and Watergate in the second term.

UCL Americas will be headed by Professor Maxine Molyneux. Other faculty members will be Professor Iwan Morgan, Professor Kevin Middlebrook, Dr. Paulo Drinot, Dr. Kate Quinn, Dr. Par Engstrom and Dr. Graham Woodgate. Its role be to promote, and coordinate research and postgraduate teaching on the Americas - Canada, the Caribbean, Latin America and the United States. The History Department has recently appointed two new members of staff to enhance its own teaching and research on the Americas – US historian David Sim and Latin American historian Thomas Rath will join Nicola Miller, Adam Smith, Melvyn Stokes, and Sarah Snyder to further strengthen UCL History's teaching and research in the history of the Americas.
