Where is American Literature?

Where is American Literature? offers a spirited and compelling argument for rethinking the way we view American literature in relation to the nation while powerfully demonstrating why it continues to matter in a global age. A refreshing and accessible investigation into the various locations– linguistic, geographical, virtual, ideological – where American writing is produced and consumed Takes a highly original approach by viewing US literature spatially rather than chronologically or thematically, retuning our understanding of the subject The book offers a vital intervention in current debates over the impact of digital technologies on the production and reception of literature, ensuring that the field remains lively and dynamic Invites readers to reconsider the subject by questioning current perspectives on, and approaches to, US literature, offering a range of fresh perspectives on familiar texts and topics
