Dedicated to highlighting currents of North American Studies in Germany.Also on spotify and itunes, or follow Talking American Studies on twitter/facebook/instagram!About the host/creator: I'm Verena Adamik, and I teach and research American Studies at the University of Potsdam. For my PhD project, I investigated the link between the United States' national narrative and utopianism by looking at fictional renditions of utopian communities (i.e. 'communes') in the nineteenth century. I am currently turning some of my findings into a book. Further research interests include horror fiction and African American writing, specifically sf, horror, and literary responses to White supremacist discourse. Because I miss going to seminars and lectures, I decided to just get scholars to spill their intellectual beans in this podcast.
