Discourses of American Exceptionalism pivot effortlessly around the fulcrum of America's position as an idealised other to the normative standard: the 'city on the hill' as disjointed from the normative valley below. However, contemporary American scholarship has been so bold as to tackle the 'othered' identities and constructs considered anti-social or nihilistic (as opposed to 'exceptional') by virtue of their disconnect which have long peopled the American narrative. Such demarcations beg the question as to what exactly denotes 'exception', and what denotes 'deviance' or even 'eccentricity'. What does it mean to be 'transgressive' in the context of an America which privileges the concept of 'exception'?
