Eccles Centre 6th form conferences

Supporting American Studies in schools is an important part of the Eccles Centre’s programme. Each year the Centre hosts spring and autumn conferences for A-Level students and others interested in US politics. Speakers regularly include two former US Congressmen plus academics and commentators from the UK. The visiting Congressmen are part of the Congress to Campus programme of the Association of Former Members of Congress.

Our most recent American Politics 6th form conference, US Politics Today, took place at the British Library Conference Centre on Monday 10 and Tuesday 11 November 2014.  The speakers included former Members of Congress Mary Bono (R-CA) and Brian Baird (D-WA) plus Professor Philip Davies (Eccles Centre), Dr Ross English (King's College London), Dr Andrew Moran (London Metropolitan University), Professor Iwan Morgan (University College London) and Professor Robert McKeever (London Metropolitan University). For further details, please see the conference programme.

The next 6th form conference at the British Library is scheduled for Monday 9 and Tuesday 10 November 2015.
