American Studies


American Studies at Vanderbilt is a vibrant, interdisciplinary community of students and faculty who participate in publicly engaged and socially committed scholarship, learning, and teaching. Through course offerings, colloquia, road trips, and research opportunities, students and faculty examine the diverse cultures, identities, and histories of the United States. The program particularly emphasizes the intersections between local and global contexts in the study of the U.S. and hence encourages comparative, cross-cultural, and international perspectives.
