"American Studies has long been a welcoming home for adventurous intellectuals. Whether blurring disciplines or fighting for social justice, students of the field have generated new ways of understanding the culture and politics of the United States in a global context. But what happens when these innovations become widely adopted? Can a shared set of "rules" become a springboard to creativity?
