aspeers 1 (2008) is available in print and online now
The first issue of "aspeers: emerging voices in american studies" is now available online and in print. "aspeers" is the first and currently only graduate-level peer-reviewed journal for European American Studies. Its first issue brings together six contributions from European graduate students of American Studies, four international creative contributions, and a piece by Professor Marina Camboni (University of Macerata, Italy). This first issue is designed as a snapshot issue, meant to give an overview of graduate-level American Studies in Europe. Its contributions cover Sigmund Freud's Clark Lectures and their influence on American Concepts of the Self, the Question of Female Identity as discussed in Sylvia Plath's The Bell Jar, Society's Reorientation to Time and Space as portrayed in Don DeLillo's Cosmopolis, the Role of Hybridity in Trevor D. Rhone's Old Story Time, Race and Racism in Faulkner's Light in August, and a Rereading of American Hardcore through the notion of Intersectional Privilege.
