Welcome to Regensburg American Studies

(Deutsche Version)

Amerikanistik/American Studies at Regensburg University explores the multiethnic and multilingual diversity of North American literatures and cultures in their regional, national, and global manifestations from early colonial times to the present.

As an interdisciplinary project, American Studies examines textual, performative, visual, material, and virtual representations and interpretations of ‘America.’ American Studies employs methodologies from literary and cultural studies, history, political science, cultural geography, visual culture studies, and linguistics.
In the context of the internationalization of American Studies, transnational, intercultural, and comparative approaches have gained particular significance in recent years.

The Regensburg American Studies program aims at a comprehensive understanding of North America, including both European and American perspectives.

Research and teaching in American Studies at Regensburg emphasize the following areas: American cultural memory; early American studies; American drama and theater; German-American relations; American visual culture studies; performance studies; teaching American Studies.

Prof. Dr. Udo Hebel, the Chair of American Studies, heads an excellent group of scholars who engage the wide diversity of American cultures from colonial times to the present. Special areas of research include American cultures of memory, American visual cultures, transnational American studies.

Prof. Dr. Volker Depkat’s research is focused on North American cultural history and European American relations from the early modern period to the present.

Degree programs in American Studies at the University of Regensburg are interdisciplinary in scope, transnational in approach, and international in outreach. Courses explore the multiethnic and multilingual diversity of North American histories, politics, cultures, and literatures from early colonial times to the immediate present.

The Regensburg European American Forum (REAF) is the platform for scholarly exchange and research in American Studies.
