From Global to Glocal: The Future of American Studies

Today we are witnessing an era of unprecedented economic, political, military, technological, and cultural interconnection, namely an era of globalization. In this era of globalization, the field of American Studies faces both challenges and opportunities. Challenges arise in the sense that globalization is often seen as loosely synonymous with Americanization and the subjects of American Studies become targets of criticism for helping to create a uniform world―a world where barriers disappear, cultures become amalgamated into a global whole, and American capitalism triumphs. Opportunities emerge as globalization precipitates the response of the local and the formation of new identities over the world, while American Studies is expected to uncover the twin process of globalization of the local and the localization of globality.
American Studies continues to undergo significant changes. It is now more of a study of diverse cultures and of diverse population than of one single American character and it has attempted to cross the geographical border of the United States and place American culture and society in a global context. Some of the keywords that characterize recent studies include 'transnational,' 'intercultural,' 'multicultural,' 'diasporic,' and 'comparative.'
While these changes are promising, the ASAK International Conference of 2008 will continue to ask American Studies scholars to explore the meaning of American Studies in regarding to glocalization, a more historically grounded understanding of the complicated view of the globalized world. We look forward to experiencing new perspectives and debates concerning globalization, glocalization, and their relationship to the United States and to Americanization.
We seek innovative scholarship that questions the future of American Studies in a glocalized context, from any discipline or from multiple disciplines, including (but not limited to) political science, history, sociology, literature and cultural studies. Please submit a one-page proposal and your curriculum vitae by April 30, 2008, to Professor Jin Hee Kim at cliojhk@khcu.ac.kr
