Sunday, May 22, 2011 - 9:33pm
Northeast Modern Language Association

Though Americanist scholarship of the past quarter-century has focused almost exclusively on the political and ideological, questions of culture, identity, and exceptionalism have more often than not supplanted rather than complemented economic analysis.
