Graduate students and senior academics from California to Tübingen, and Seville to Melbourne are this week gathering Lancaster University for the 4th meeting of the Summer Academy in Atlantic History.

Started in 2009, it meets biennially in different European venues, as a means to meet, exchange ideas, discuss and keep current the very latest in work on the ebbs and flows of people, ideas and objects across the Atlantic. This is the first time that the Academy has met in the UK, and therefore it is a great opportunity for the world to see and experience Lancaster, with its own past of Atlantic trade and migration, and for Lancaster to cement itself as a major European centre of Atlantic History study.
