American Studies Program

"American Studies" is the shorthand name for a scholarly field that studies North America (especially the United States, but stretching to the whole continent) in an interdisciplinary way. Students in American Studies think about issues of cultural diversity, structures of power, the arts, media and politics, sex and gender, social movements, and how the US relates to global issues.  They do this in a multilayered way, using methods and approaches from several disciplines.
