By Brian Russell Roberts,Michelle Ann Stephens

Departing from traditional narratives of the U.S. and the Americas as essentially continental areas, the individuals to Archipelagic American Studies theorize the United States as constituted via and liable to an assemblage of interconnected islands, archipelagoes, seashores, continents, seas, and oceans. They hint those planet-spanning archipelagic connections in essays on subject matters starting from Indigenous sovereignty to the paintings of Édouard Glissant, from Philippine name facilities to US militarization within the Caribbean, and from the good Pacific rubbish patch to enduring overlaps among US imperialism and a colonial Mexican archipelago. Shaking unfastened the straitjacket of continental exceptionalism that hinders and permeates Americanist scholarship, Archipelagic American Studies asserts a extra proper and dynamic technique for brooding about the geographic, cultural, and political claims of the U.S. inside of broader notions of America.
