Organization

At the HCA, the America-related research of six university faculties and ten disciplines converges, offering a range of expertise that is unique in the academic world. The interaction between the various disciplines makes it possible to teach American Studies with a cross-disciplinary perspective and therefore do justice to the complexity of the object of research – the United States.

The following disciplines participate in the HCA:

The Board of Directors of the Heidelberg Center of American Studies consists of members from the six faculties that contribute to the HCA. These are the Faculties of Chemistry and Earth Sciences; Economics and Social Sciences; Law; Modern Languages; Philosophy; and Theology. Each faculty director on the board is elected for six years. The six representatives adopted the proposal of Prof. Dr. Hommelhoff, Rector of the University of Heidelberg until September 2007, and named Professor Detlef Junker Founding Director. The late Professor Winfried Brugger and Professor Michael Welker were named Deputy Directors.

In June 2006, the HCA established a Board of Trustees. It consists out of ten members; all of them long time supporters of the HCA, aiming at creating a leading center for American Studies and transatlantic exchange at Heidelberg University. The Board of Trustees meets at least once a year to discuss current developments of the institute and to give advice on future prospects. Dr. Hans-Peter Wild serves as Chairman of the Board of Trustees.
