The Clinton Institute Summer School will bring together scholars and graduate students from
around the world to engage in wide-ranging discussion on interdisciplinary study of the United
States. The School is aimed at advanced graduate students and junior faculty in the fields of

The programme will offer participants the opportunity to work with distinguished figures in
these fields and to investigate current developments in study of the United States and its global
relations. The School’s format will include daily workshop seminars and plenary lectures.
Participants work with the School’s core faculty in one of four week-long seminars.

In 2009 the faculty will include Sabine Broeck (University of Bremen), Hamilton Carroll (University
of Leeds), Jane Desmond (University of Illinois), Thomas Keenan (Bard College), Liam Kennedy
