New BAA Publication has been released recently (Volume 20)


This volume collects original contributions discussing aspects, dimensions, and major problems of cultural mobility and knowledge formation in the Americas from an interdisciplinary and comparative perspective.


Looking at the Americas as a site of multi-directional entanglement and interaction, the chapters highlight the non-English and non-European contexts of the United States from the sixteenth to the twentieth century.


They focus on processes of cultural hybridity resulting from the encounter of European, Native American, African, and Asian cultures in the Americas.


You can purchase your own copy of Cultural Mobility and Knowledge Formation in the Americas edited by Volker Depkat and Britta Waldschmidt-Nelson via the website of the publishing company Universitätsverlag Winter Heidelberg. This publication is also available as ebook.
