The Editorial Committee of the Netherlands American Studies Review is happy to announce that the Spring 2023 issue is online now and can be found here.
In this Spring 2023 issue, you will find eight carefully selected pieces that reflect the topical diversity and interdisciplinary nature of our field in the Netherlands. Our contributors cover a variety of issues, ranging from the US’ ‘reverse course’ policy toward Japan to a critique of the conventional crisis narrative in Philipp Meyer’s American Rust, and from the linkages between environmental justice and racial justice to an exploration of ‘white Christian nationalism.’ These papers were written by students in different stages of their higher education, ranging from the early stages of their bachelor’s to the final stages of their master’s.
We are thankful for all the students who sent us their work, for the editors who worked tirelessly to select and fine-tune these papers, and, of course, for the NASA Board, which has supported us throughout the process. We are proud of the final product and hope it will inspire you as much as it did us.
On behalf of the Editorial Board
