Provincializing the United States
The transnational dimensions of North American history attract ever more attention in recent years. Inspired by twenty first-century experiences of global entanglements, an increasing number of scholars set out to explore the past anew. Methods and concepts of this re-orientated U.S. history, however, are still a matter of dispute. This volume submits a theoretically reflected and empirically saturated contribution to this debate. Its contributions explore U.S. history from the margins, discussing topics as diverse as U.S. settler imperialism, technological and intellectual networks, Native American history, or African-American missionaries. They open up new, postcolonial perspectives on North American History, thereby provincializing United States.
