American Studies

Welcome to American Studies!

American Studies at Augsburg University builds on an understanding of the United States as shaped by transnational and transcultural processes, both in the present and in the past. This entails a conception of American Studies as North American Studies, which means that beyond our focus on US-American literatures and cultures, other texts produced in the Americas – such as ones originating from Canada or the borderlands between the United States and Mexico – are an integral part of our teaching and research.
