Transnational Americas

Envisioning Inter-American Area Studies in Globalization Processes

This collection of essays proposes an inter-American space of entanglement as a perspective for new area studies beyond methodological nationalism. Taking a transdisciplinary approach to these hemispheric area studies, this volume combines findings from sociology, history, political science, literary and media studies. The fifteen essays are grouped into thematic sections on “Inter-American Geopolitics,” “Migration, Diaspora, Translocal Communities,” “Globalization and Medialization of Indigenous Identities,” and “Post-multicultural Identity Politics.”

About the series Inter-American Studies/Estudios Interamericanos

Copublished by WVT Wissenschaftlicher Verlag Trier and Bilingual Press in collaboration with the International Association of Inter-American Studies, this interdisciplinary series creates a forum for a critical academic dialogue between North and South on the cultures, societies, and histories of the Americas, promoting an inter-American paradigm that shifts the scholarly focus from methodological nationalism to the wider context of the Western Hemisphere.
