Current Issue

Available now: American Quarterly December 2015, Volume 67, Issue 4. This issue features the first forum undertaken since the editorial office relocated to Hawai‘i. The AQ editorial team wanted to use this as an occasion to think further about the place of Palestine in American studies, both engaging the significance of the boycott resolution and also moving beyond it to frame the issue in broader historical, political, and economic contexts. Two scholar-activists with long involvement in and on Palestine, Rabab Abdulhadi and Dana M. Olwan, co-convened the forum. Make sure to visit the Beyond the Page section for supplementary content from the forum. 

The September 2012 issue of American Quarterly (Volume 64, Issue 3) was recognized as the co-winner of Best Special Issue by The Council of Editors of Learned Journals (CELJ) recently.

The Call for Papers for the 2017 Special Issue, The Chinese Factor: Reorienting Global Imaginaries in American Studies is now available.

The journal has updated its Author Guidelines to introduce an online submission system.
