[Inter]sections is an annual double-blind peer reviewed journal of American Studies (ISSN 2068 – 3472) indexed in the MLA Directory of Periodicals, Ulrichsweb, DOAJ, CEEOL, and EBSCO. [Inter]sections publishes academic articles, reviews, and interviews relevant to the field of American studies. We encourage our authors to explore the most recent scholarship, from a solid critical background and in conversation with relevant and challenging work from the field. Although we focus primarily on subjects that are grounded in the nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty-first century, we do not exclude work that explores other time periods.

Superheroes and the Immigrant Experience (NeMLA 2019)

The superhero-as-outsider has been a narrative told for decades since Superman’s parents sent him on a rocket from Krypton to Earth. The immigration narrative is closely aligned with extraterrestrial heroes, including refugees such as the Martian Manhunter and Icon. Yet a superhero does not have to be from another planet to experience the process of immigration: in just X-Men, Charles Xavier, Deadpool, Nightcrawler, Colossus, and Storm all work outside their nations of birth, and Magneto forms Genosha as an international sanctuary for mutants persecuted by their governments. Recent films such as Thor: Ragnarok and Black Panther examine the challenges of being forced out of one’s home and taking on the role of an exile.
