Membership is open to scholars, students and teachers of nineteenth-century American history at all levels. We currently have a membership of about sixty people, most of them teachers and researchers specializing in United States history in British universities, but including also graduate students, interested laymen, and foreign scholars. Membership payments are mostly used to finance postgraduate conference bursaries and to meet the Associations' extremely small running costs. Members receive regular emails with updates on conferences, publications, and workshops taking place across the UK related to nineteenth-century America, and have the opportunity to publicise their own research on our website.

Along with membership of BrANCH, you are also able to purchase a subscription to our journal, American Nineteenth Century History (see ANCH tab for more information). 
Please note that you must be a member of BrANCH to speak at the annual conference. The membership year runs January to December.
