The United States Studies Centre at the University of Sydney is a university-based research centre, dedicated to the independent analysis of American foreign policy, defence, trade, technology, politics and culture. We have submitted two grant proposals for the US State Department. The purpose of the first grant is to deliver a speaker series to demonstrate the relevance of the Australia-US alliance, raise awareness among the general public, and engage new, younger audiences. The purpose of the second grant is to deliver a series of events designed to leverage Australian interest in the US midterm elections and take a substantive look at how the key areas of interest for Australia (eg climate change, trade and tech policy) may change based on the make-up of the new Congress.
