Welcome to ARNet
ARNet – American Resources on the Net – is the official website of the American Studies Resource Centre (ASRC) at Liverpool John Moores University, UK. The ASRC provides an educational service to students, teachers and the general public in the UK on all aspects of American culture. The ASRC is staffed by student research assistants under the directorship of Dr Bella Adams and webmaster David Forster. ARNet is fundamental to the ASRC’s educational service, allowing it to disseminate information about American Studies courses, conferences and events. ARNet also provides an annotated list of links to American Studies resources on the internet, covering a range of topics from the environment and education to online publications. ARNet also has its own online publication, which features scholarly articles and book reviews. American Studies Today is published annually in hard copy form and is free to subscribers and contributors. American Studies Today Online is also free and features additional material, including longer articles and ‘Letters from America.’ If you would like to contribute an article and/or a book review, please see our submissions policy. We hope you enjoy ARNet.
