American Studies Today

Journal of the American Studies Resources Centre ASRC

American Studies Today was originally founded to support UK high school and community college teachers of American Studies topics. Since 1991 this has developed to include articles/reviews etc relevant also to undergraduate and postgraduate students of American Studies. Articles also reflect a growing interest from the wider academic community. Its purpose, therefore, is to respond to not only the interests/needs of students and teachers, but also to offer a forum for original research articles and evaluations of contemporary events. The journal welcomes articles from teachers, writers and academics. The editorial process is led by David Forster (ASRC Resources Manager) and Ian Ralston (ASRC Director). The ASRC’s UK and US Advisory Panels provide additional advice and support. The ASRC web site holds full text copy of all articles from 1994 onwards and also those not included in the journal due to length.
