Prompted by the efforts of the Royal Historical Society (RHS), the Organization of American Historians (OAH) and the Women in American Studies Network (WASN) to give attention to issues of equality and diversity, the British Group of Early American Historians (BGEAH), British American Nineteenth Century Historians (BrANCH) and Historians of the Twentieth Century United States (HOTCUS) decided to conduct a joint survey to discover more about levels of inclusion within the field of American history as practiced in the UK. Our hope is that other field-specific groupings might reproduce this initiative, both to influence their own practice and enrich the information available to larger disciplinary organizations.

The full survey report is available as a PDF here.
