Studying America is the website of Dr Peter Templeton, a researcher in American Studies who has taught in Humanities and Social Sciences departments at Loughborough University and University of Liverpool, as well as several other Higher Education Institutions in the United Kingdom.
Our aim here is simple: for those who study or teach American topics to learn more about those subjects. We hope to give you new ways of looking at well-known writers and introduce you to some new ones – it’d be great to introduce you to something neglected that you find interesting. It’s also our goal to talk about American history in ways that stress the ongoing relevance for the modern world.
Here you’ll find a blog sharing my research into American Studies, as well as resources for teachers of American subjects, both of which are designed to also appeal to a general reader with an interest in the US.
