To kickstart their new podcast series, European Initiatives in American Studies,  members of the BAAS (British Association for American Studies) traveled to Middelburg to hear all about our institute and talk to our staff and guests.

The episode features our guests’ experiences, the opportunities and grants we offer, our archival collections and more!

In the episode, Aija Oksman (University of Edinburgh) discussed all this with Gaetano di Tommaso, one of the program’s coordinators and a post-doc at RIAS, and David Carlson and Heleen Blommers, PhD students at the University of Notre Dame and Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam respectively. Thank you to the BAAS for producing the episode and advertising our research center in beautiful Middelburg! Visit the USSO website to find out more about them.
