American Studies : A User's Guide Paperback / softback
American Studies has long been a home for adventurous students seeking to understand the culture and politics of the United States.
Despite being taught in universities around the world, American Studies has resisted developing a coherent methodology for fear of losing the flexibility and freedom to imagine new avenues of thought.
But what if these fears are misplaced? Through a fresh look at the origins of the field, this book contends that a shared set of "rules" can offer a springboard to creativity.
American Studies: A User's Guide offers readers a critical introduction to the history and methods of the field, useful strategies for interpretation, curation, analysis, and theory, and case studies of American Studies in practice.
