Summary

American studies has changed drastically over the past few decades, as a new wave of scholarsarmed with groundbreaking ideas and more extensive methods of researchflocked to the relatively young field. This focus on scholarship, though necessary to the advancement of the discipline, has left pedagogy largely ignored. InAmerican Studies in Dialogue, Matthias Oppermann consciously resists the traditional academic split between scholarship and classroom practice. His study calls for a radical reconstruction of American studies grounded in an understanding of cultural analysis and critique as genuinely dialogic processes of research and pedagogy. Drawing on case studies ranging from courses in early American civilization to recent multimedia projects,American Studies in Dialoguewill be required reading for American studies scholars and teachers.
