The Journal of American Studies seeks to critique and interrogate the notion of “America”, pursuing this through international perspectives on the history, literature, politics and culture of the United States.

The Journal publishes original peer-reviewed research and analysis by established and emerging scholars throughout the world, considering US history, politics, literature, institutions, economics, film, popular culture, geography, sociology and related subjects in domestic, continental, hemispheric, and global contexts.

Its expanded book review section offers in-depth analysis of recent American Studies scholarship to promote further discussion and debate. The journal is intended not only for students and scholars, but also for general readers with an interest in the United States.

The Journal is published quarterly, and available by subscription  and online.
