Bayerische Amerika-Akademie (BAA)

The Bavarian American Academy

The Bavarian American Academy (BAA), founded in 1998, provides a scholarly network for researchers working on North America and inter-American relations in the fields of cultural studies and the social sciences. The BAA organizes annual conferences and summer schools, sponsors regional symposia and lectures, awards postgraduate fellowships, and fosters knowledge transfer.


Although the primary focus of the Academy‘s activities is the USA, in the context of interdisciplinary and interregional studies it also supports research on Canada, Latin America and the Caribbean.

Applications are now open for the 2020 BAA fellowships to Harvard, Yale, Duke or the Library of Congress
