Recent movements in American literary and cultural studies, ranging from New Historicism and the New Americanists to various forms of race and gender studies, aim at a radical revision of our view of the historical role and contemporary significance of American culture. this revision raises several crucial questions: 1) the question whether new theories of American culture can be constructed from recent revisionary work; 2) the question in what relation these new theories stand to older theories of American culture based on ideas like democratic art or vernacular culture; 3) the question whether it is still possible to use specialized "local knowledge" for broader generalizations about American culture and society.
