Reviews

This book offers wonderful resources for teaching American Studies, especially with a focus on race, gender, sexuality, and power in a moment of danger in which such resources are badly needed. Focusing on teachers and students in classrooms, this book powerfully intervenes in current debates about the significance of the university today. With thoughtful contributions from many of the top scholars currently working in the field, this book will be invaluable for teachers, students, and other scholars and readers." - Shelley Streeby, professor of literature and ethnic studies, University of California, San Diego

"This innovative collection invites us to recognize that American Studies 'scholarship' happens as much in what and how we teach as in the research we publish. The editors have brought together an exciting array of essays by scholar-teachers working in different educational contexts, from public universities to liberal arts colleges, high schools to adult education classes. These essays offer practical ideas for those who teach American Studies, in all its various incarnations. But they offer much more than that, including reflections on teaching and learning as embodied experiences, and, perhaps most strikingly, a fascinating portrait of the field today as a site of interdisciplinary inquiry, critique, and discovery on the part of students as well as teachers and scholars." - Julia L. Mickenberg, professor of American Studies, University of Texas at Austin

"This is an expansive and much-needed volume that is both timely and imperative. Particularly impressive is the interdisciplinary range of critical race and American studies scholarship that enlivens the various pedagogical interventions while simultaneously attending to new key terms, essential topics in twenty-first century politics, and the ever-shifting dynamics of American identity. Truly, Teaching American Studies: State of the Classroom as State of the Field is indispensable for our contemporary academic and applied considerations of American Studies." - Kim D. Hester Williams, coeditor, Racial Ecologies, and chair, American Multicultural Studies, Sonoma State University
