Join the Conversation
American Quarterly is dedicated to being a forum for intellectual exchange among American studies scholars. The re-designed website creates new opportunities for scholars to connect outside of the printed journal. Good scholarship is only worthwhile if it is shared. Interdisciplinary scholarship in American studies hinges on communication between its scholars, and as the foremost journal of its kind, American Quarterly is at the center of this dialogue.
The new Interact section includes:
- Teaching tools for using articles in the classroom
- "AQ Then and Now," which compares and contrasts articles on a similar topic or object of study from different journal issues. Our first set of articles includes Clyde Woods’s “Katrina World: Blues, Bourbon, and the Return to the Source” with Eric Tang’s “A Gulf Unites Us: The Vietnamese Americans of Black New Orleans East.”
- Reader commentary on a recent American Quarterly article to allow further engagement of published works.
