Roosevelt Study Center
The Roosevelt Study Center is active in promoting and investigating the Roosevelt Legacy in transatlantic relations through research, special projects, and public events. It does so through academic publications, facilitating research based on its special collections, and organizing conferences, lectures, and debates. The RSC operates within a vibrant national and international network that includes Cambridge University, Sorbonne Nouvelle, Heidelberg University, the Theodore Roosevelt Association, the Roosevelt Institute, and many Dutch universities.
The RSC gratefully acknowledges the financial support of the Province of Zeeland and the Netherlands Ministry of Education, Culture and Science.
