Abstract: UACES (the UK's University Association for Contemporary European Studies) began its life on 1 December 1967, six years before the UK joined the then EEC. In 2017, UACES celebrates its 50th anniversary in the year that the UK heads for the Brussels exit. This chapter provides an overview of the early years of UACES' existence with a focus on contrasting its initial agendas with those of the present day. It examines the challenge posed by European Studies (ES) to the established order of academic disciplines in the UK's universities, and the role played by UACES in leading this development. It looks ahead to the next era for UACES and European Studies in a UK and EU defined by Brexit.
