Since the early 1990s, American studies scholars were incresingly confronted with new challenges linked to the discourse of internationalization. After the end of the Cold War, the premises on which the discipline of american Studies was based were decisively changing. New parameters were developed ti critically explore US culture and discuss the role of America in a new world order. during this phase, American studies scholars have rethought and redefined the political and theorical tenets of their discipline , particulary by utilizing postnational and comparative approaches. among other currents, three aspects of American studies moved into the foreground: 1.) cultural hybridities and border discourses (new structures of self - formation linked to changes in the cultural fabric of America), 2.) diasporic identities (the Black Atlantic as a counter - movement to modernity), and 3.) transculturations (the "Americanization" of European culture and, vice versa, the Europeanization of American culture).
Contributions discuss the self-definition of European American Studies after the end of the Cold War, methodological and comparative strategies, issues of globalization/extra-territorialization, as well as the stakes of interdisciplinarity.
