Randy Bass, Director
The Center for Electronic Projects in American Culture Studies (CEPACS) was founded in 1994 to coordinate and develop a range of electronic projects related to interdisciplinary studies in the culture and history of the United States.
CEPACS supports a range of projects affiliated with the American Studies Program and English Department at Georgetown University:

This site includes dynamic syllabi for the courses in the American Civilization sequence, as well as student projects on such topics as the Civil War and Social Variables in the Nineteenth Century. Additionally, the Georgetown University American Studies Newsletter is now online. Links to other related internet resouces can also be found, as well as a list of faculty members involved in American Studies, a complete list of thesis topics of all Georgetown American Studies graduates, and a list of concentrations for the American Studies Class of 1995. This is also the home of The American Quarterly. It also is the home of the Jesuit Plantation Project.
The Jesuit Plantation Project involves the conversion of the Maryland Province Archive to an electronic format. The archive contains over 200 years of personal, legal, and financial documents produced by the six Jesuit-owned plantations in Maryland.

The students and faculty work collaboratively on the ongoing development of this site.
