Ad Americam: Journal of American Studies

Ad Americam. Journal of American Studies is an interdisciplinary journal published yearly by The Institute of American Studies and Polish Diaspora of Jagiellonian University, Krakow, Poland. Ad Americam publishes double-blind peer-reviewed articles by scholars on American history, politics, law, culture, sociology and comparative studies of American and other cultures.
The Institute was established in 2004. It emerged from the consolidation of various programs (Chair of American Studies, Center for Canadian Studies, Chair of Latin American Studies, Chair of the History of International Migration Movements and Chair of Sociology of Nation and Ethnic Relations). The Chair of American Studies was founded in 1991 as an interfaculty research institution of the Jagiellonian University with the aim of teaching Polish students about different issues concerning the United States. In 1995 a program of doctoral studies was launched and in March 2000 the first Ph.D. dissertation was defended. Currently, The Institute now functions within the Faculty of International Relations and Political Science and nearly 1,000 students are enrolled.
The Institute offers the following programs: American studies (three-year B.A., two-year M.A. and Ph.D.), Latin-American studies (two-year M.A.), ethnicity studies (two-year M.A.) and - taught in English - a two-year M.A. program in TransAtlantic Studies (TAS).
