Alif 31

The Other Americas

Edited by Ira Dworkin

A Publication of The American University in Cairo Press

This issue of Alif focuses on critical understandings of America beyond its frequent equation with the physical borders of the United States of America and the ideological jurisdiction of its official state. Critically exploring issues of transnationalism, globalization, ethnic pluralism, and cultural cross-fertilization, "The Other Americas" disavows narrow traditions of American exceptionalism and develops a conversation about the less visible "Americas" in the domestic and global senses, considering less well-known-but no less central-cultural productions within the borders of the U.S. and beyond them.
