American Crossroads

The goal of the American Crossroads series is to expand and deepen our understanding of race and ethnicity in the United States, today and in the past, by publishing intellectually challenging, engagingly written books of substance and broad interest. We encourage authors to cross boundaries of all sorts: between past and present, between ethnic and racial groups, between academic disciplines, between public and private, between local and global, between social and political history and cultural studies. We invite submissions that question the meaning and uses of identity; interrogate the construction of national boundaries; explore relations of class, gender, and sexuality; or promote the elasticity of concepts of race and ethnicity. We welcome manuscripts that focus on peoples not usually included under the rubric of "Ethnic Studies" as well as manuscripts that offer cross-cultural or transnational analysis of more familiar ethnic and racial groups. We seek to illuminate the fundamental significance of the making and remaking of racial and ethnic identities in books that are thoroughly informed by historical, political, and social contexts and intended to shape future generations of scholarship in Ethnic Studies.
