About the Bavarian American Academy

The objective of the Bavarian American Academy (BAA) is to support research on or related to the United States and to enhance the interaction between science and culture, society, and economy.

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

The BAA provides a network of cooperation for Bavarian scholars from a wide range of disciplines in the cultural and social sciences who are specializing in these areas. It aims at coordinating and focusing on their respective competencies and resources. The BAA sees itself as an innovative, comprehensive, inter-university institution.
