By Jeffrey Herlihy-Mera

After American Studies is a well timed critique of nationwide and transnational ways to group, and their varieties of belonging and trans/patriotisms. utilizing experiences in multicultural psychology and cultural neuroscience to interpret an array of cultural forms—including literature, paintings, movie, advertisements, se's, city making plans, museum artifacts, visa coverage, public schooling, and ostensibly non-state media—the argument fills a niche in modern feedback by means of a spotlight on what makes cultural canons symbolically powerful (or not) for anyone uncovered to them. The ebook makes small print concerning the limits of transnationalism as a paradigm, evidencing how such techniques frequently reiterate presumptive and essentialized notions of identification that functionality as new dimensions of exceptionalism. in line with the shortcomings in trans/national feedback, the ultimate bankruptcy initiates a theoretical attention of a postgeographic and postcultural kind of neighborhood (and of cultural analysis).
