Hemispheric American Studies

Robert Levine, Editor, with Caroline Levander
Rutgers University Press, 2008

This landmark collection brings together a range of exciting new comparative work in the burgeoning field of hemispheric studies.  Scholars address the urgent question of how we might reframe disciplinary boundaries within the broad area of what is generally called American studies. The essays take as their starting points such questions as what happens if the "fixed" borders of a nation are recognized not only as historically produced political constructs but also as component parts of a deeper, more multilayered series of national and indigenous histories?
