The focus of this roundtable “Expressions of Cultural Intersections in Bob Dylan’s Art” is to explore the many and diverse expressions of cultural identities, challenges to those identities, and sources of the challenges, found in Bob Dylan’s art.  As a nation dedicated to the concept of the melting pot, the United States in particular has been a site of transnational migration and relocation that has been deeply enriched by popular culture, and Bob Dylan is widely recognized as America’s troubadour.  In many songs, through the art from of lyrical poetry, Dylan masterfully identifies the many challenges experienced by diverse individuals facing social, political, cultural and economic change, exploitation, loss of identity and other jarring forms of cultu
