Established in 2007, Historians of the Twentieth Century United States (HOTCUS) exists to facilitate and promote scholarship in the field of twentieth century American history. Although it is based in the United Kingdom, with strong links to the British Association of American Studies, HOTCUS also draws its membership from universities in Ireland, mainland Europe, the United States and other countries around the world. After a successful annual conference in Middelburg in 2012, HOTCUS returned to the continent from July 6 to July 8 2016 with an impressive program of 20 sessions and 60+ speakers. The key note speaker was Margot Canaday of Princeton University. She has spoken on "Pink Precariat:  LGBT Workers in the Shadow of Civil Rights".
