Seminars

2007 National Endowment for the Hu­manities seminar Hemispheric American Literature (dir. Adams and Levander) set out “to explore the new possibili­ties for American literary study opened up when ‘America’ is understood not as a synonym for the isolated United States, but as a network of cultural filiations that have ex­tended across the hemisphere from the period of coloniza­tion to the present” (Hemispheric American Literature).

 

Professional Organizations

Although the new International American Stud­ies Association was founded not exclusively to promote hemispheric scholarship but rather to create a supra­national institutional structure for American studies scholarship, it has explicitly emphasized the hemispheric approach since the beginning. According to its Web site, its mission is to further “the international exchange of ideas and information among scholars from all nations and various disciplines who study and teach America regionally, hemispherically, nationally, and transnation­ally” (International American Studies Association).
