Re-defining the Dream on the American Stage

Alison Forsyth

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The scholars included in this collection sought to indicate more contemporary working definitions for the expression 'American Dream', or rather Dreams. The multidisciplinary selections come from many countries and represent scholars from different backgrounds. They reflect the current developments and approaches in the field of US Studies and we hope to help broaden the scope of programs in higher education institutions. The chapters are thematically organized in two sections: “Initial Dialogues” and “Comparative Dialogues.” The first one comprises essays that set the foundations for our discussions and intends to familiarize newcomers with the theme. The second section extends the possibilities of working comparatively with the American Dreams and a number of other interdisciplinary fields of interest for US Studies programs.
