SAR Visiting Professorship at King’s College London
This program has ended. We are no longer accepting resumés.
From 2016 to 2021, the Sons of the American Revolution partnered with King’s College London in support of the Georgian Papers Programme. One of the results of this partnership was the SAR Visiting Professorship at King’s College London, which advanced the SAR’s institutional goals while proclaiming our commitment to the scholarly study of American History on the world stage. The SAR-King’s College partnership allowed the SAR to be at the forefront of new research into the reign of George III, and new discoveries about the American War for Independence.
By the terms of the SAR’s partnership with King’s College London, the SAR supported American scholars and gave them the opportunity to study original documents of George III and the British government during the American Revolution on location at the Royal Archives housed at Windsor Castle. Previously, only about 15% of the more than 350,000 documents, diaries, and papers had been studied or published. This more thorough effort to examine the Georgian Papers gave scholars new insights into the 18th century.
Through the course of the SAR’s partnership with King’s College London, the following scholars served as the SAR Visiting Professor at King’s College London:
2016-2017, Andrew O’Shaughnessy, University of Virginia
2017-2018, Gabriel Paquette, Johns Hopkins University
2018-2019, Katherine Carté, Southern Methodist University
2019-2020, David Armitage, Harvard University
2020-2021, David Hancock, University of Michigan
