Welcome to …and everyday life, an American Studies blog. We hope that this will become a forum for conversations, comments, debates and so on about every imaginable aspect of American politics and culture.
The contributors to this blog are all professors and write, in one fashion or another, about American culture, with particular emphases on business, music, food, technology, popular culture, religion and so on, with particular attention to questions of how those areas of cultural expression change our understandings of race, class, age, gender and sexuality. and vice versa.
We are interested in these things for their own sakes, but also for the ways they subtly reshape our current and past understandings of ourselves and everyday life.
