Meet the Team: The RIAS PhD Students

The RIAS hosts a small, but dynamic community of doctoral students.  

As of 2017, in cooperation with the Province of Zeeland and Leiden University, the RIAS acts as a home for doctoral students pursuing advanced graduate study in American history, including US foreign relations, media and culture, citizenship and the law, and gender and race relations. Based in Middelburg, they are able to draw on the resources of the RIAS and its library, and join in regular events and seminars at the institute. 

Our PhD students work across a wide and diverse range of academic subjects – yet they are united by a common interest in the rich history of the United States, and its global significance. For more information about the RIAS PhD students and their current projects, see the RIAS Staff page
