This seminar for the Cultural Studies Association Meeting at New York University, May 22-24, 2008, invites papers that explore cultural replication and the persistent role the "American" takes as producing agent in universal spectacles of sameness. Our purview includes the influence and extent of contemporary perception, but also constructs or critiques of the American in earlier eras and in other New World locations, for example, in Mexico, in the Caribbean, in South or Central America, and Canada as well as how the American is copied, interpreted, and replicated, in other venues around the globe.
What constitutes the "American" politically, culturally, socially, emotionally, performatively and how has that been acted out and reproduced in the environment of the everyday?
