The volume is a collection of essays written exclusively by American Studies M.A. and Ph.D. students at the West University of Timișoara, comprising seventeen projects focused mainly on American literature and culture. From sports and politics to advertising and video-games, from the artistic and social manifestos of the 20th century’s most heated public and private debates to the provocative tenets of postmodernist experiments, the reader is offered a moving panorama of the United States, as reflected by some of the main discourses it has produced in time.
