About the working group

Revolutionizing American Studies is designed to animate a critical engagement with the interdisciplinary field of American Studies, which incorporates the study of history, literature, art, economics, film, and sociology among many other fields. Questions that are less commonly addressed in American Studies include: how do our engagements with history and the present inform the ways we craft knowledge for a survivable future? How might we rethink the spatial and temporal protocols that have structured American studies in such ways as to recognize the effects of globalization?
