[Inter]sections publishes academic articles, reviews, and interviews relevant to the field of American studies. We encourage our authors to explore the most recent scholarship, from a solid critical background and in conversation with relevant and challenging work from the field. Although we focus primarily on subjects that are grounded in the nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty-first century, we do not exclude work that explores other time periods. The scope of our journal includes research in the fields of North American literature, history, visual culture, film and television studies, popular culture, political studies, race and ethnic studies, philosophy, gender and sexuality studies. The journal aims to encourage (but not impose) a transnational approach that places the North American space in dialogue with other cultural and political spaces. [Inter]sections also aims to encourage a wide variety of critical approaches and interdisciplinary dialogues. [Inter]sections is published under the auspices of the American Studies Program at the University of Bucharest.
