Abstract or Description

This is the first in what the Associate Editors hope will become a series of transatlantic exchanges about American Studies pedagogy. Conducted in the four months between January and April 2017, the discussion encompasses the political significance of African American Studies, the role of identity in the shaping of curricula and student responses to those curricula, and the challenges encountered by teachers at a variety of career stages and in a range of educational and geographic locations.
