Forthcoming Issue

Editors Letter for Forthcoming Issue Vol. 52, No. 1

Dear Readers and Subscribers,

The editorial team of American Studies is pleased to present in this issue our new AMSJ logo.  This logo represents the new direction that the journal has taken as both a print and an online journal. Last spring we initiated the AMSJ blog  ( to publish articles on pedagogy and to re-publish outstanding book reviews and review essays from the print journal. In addition to these new additions, you will note that AMSJ is making the journal more aesthetically pleasing in another way by promoting the visual aspects of our articles and review essays. You will note in this issue more photographs and visual texts accompanying the articles.

Lastly, we are pleased to announce another formatting change to AMSJ.  We have experienced several office moves and staff changes in the past few years, and, as a result, fell behind in our production schedule.  Since that time, we have published a number of double issues in our effort to put the journal on chronological track. As we deliberated the reformats we wish to make to the journal the editorial team has decided to change our system of dating. We will now date each new issue by volume and number, not by year.  The cover will list the year in which the issue was actually published, thus divorcing us from the preexisting dating system we inherited. This change frees us to publish without the impediment of continually back dating AMSJ, allowing us to more accurately reflect the emergence of new work.  Please note that the volume and number will remain the same, only the year of publication will change.

We are pleased with our new direction and will be announcing to you our other new plans in the months to come. We hope that you will enjoy this issue as much as we have in putting it together.
