American Quarterly

American Quarterly represents innovative interdisciplinary scholarship that engages with key issues in American studies.  The journal publishes essays that examine American societies and cultures, past and present, in global and local contexts.  This includes work that contributes to our understanding of the United States in its diversity, its relations with its hemispheric neighbors, and its impact on world politics and culture.  Through the publication of reviews of books, events, and diverse media, the journal seeks to make available the broad range of emergent approaches to American studies

Encyclopedia of American Studies Online

The Encyclopedia of American Studies Online, sponsored by the American Studies Association, is an open access resource available to the international community of American studies researchers, teachers, and students.


The term American studies encompasses a vast range of disciplines, all of which, in one way or another, are trying to describe the cultures of the United States. In recent years American studies has also incorporated comparative studies of Canada and Latin America; and indeed a transnational, global perspective on American culture has become one of the leading currents in the field as we begin the twenty-first century. Where, after all, do the borders of America stop, when its influence was, throughout the twentieth century, so pervasive on world cultures?

The EAS Forum features periodic online discussions of topics relating American Studies, public scholarship, and teaching.  We feature now our seventh forum, a discussion on Exhibiting American Studies.
