Introducing the Inter-American Perspectives/Perspectivas Interamericanas Series! Copublished by LIT Verlag (Münster, Hamburg, Berlin, Vienna, London) and Bilingual Review Press, this series explores connections among North, Central, and South American culture, literature, media, language, history, society, and politics. Intercultural issues and their regional, national, and hemispheric contexts are of particular interest. The series seeks to promote transnational approaches to the Americas or any of their parts and to stimulate discussion on perspective.
The twenty-four essays in E Pluribus Unum? provide a fresh look at cultural identities in the Americas from a transnational, inter-American perspective. Written in English or in Spanish, they explore a variety of topics related to four main categories: politics of divergence and integration in the Americas; media and media industries in the formation of (trans-)national identities; literary negotiations of identity; and cultural diversity, hybridity, and new identities.
Sebastian Thies is junior professor of Hispanic literatures and media studies at the University of Bielefeld, Germany. Josef Raab is professor of American studies at the University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany.
