Críticas:

The group of scholars arranged here are concerned solely with "the concept of the imaginary, which the transnational turn newly urges us to recognize as a methodological and conceptual problem, and which takes different contours in a world conceived in transnational terms" (vii), and the symphony that this scholarly orchestra performs is pitch perfect. Particularly unsurpassable is the book's final section on "Political Imaginaries" that brings Fluck, Pease, Walter Benn Michaels, and Chris Newfield together in what amounts to a jazz riff on the state of the imaginative nation. If we ever wondered why we are in this business of American studies after the transnational turn, this final section reminds us of the whimsical provocation, play, and sheer imagination that can, under the best of circumstances, guide us to unexpected places of ideation and creation."-- "American Literary History" "One of the most valuable aspects of this critical anthology involves its illumination of different ways in which the term "social imaginary" has been used and the different intellectual traditions it evokes. . . . This collection of essays is a fine tribute to Fluck's significant career as a pioneer of international American studies, but it also raises broader questions about ways in which non-U.S. perspectives on American cultural politics can provide an important check and balance system within the field.-- "Amerikastudien/American Studies" "The group of scholars arranged here are concerned solely with "the concept of the imaginary, which the transnational turn newly urges us to recognize as a methodological and conceptual problem, and which takes different contours in a world conceived in transnational terms" (vii), and the symphony that this scholarly orchestra performs is pitch perfect.

Reseña del editor:

The Imaginary and Its Worlds collects essays that boldly rethink the imaginary as a key concept for cultural criticism. Addressing both the emergence and the reproduction of the social, the imaginary is ideally suited to chart the consequences of the transnational turn in American studies. Leading scholars in the field from the United States and Europe address the literary, social, and political dimensions of the imaginary, providing a methodological and theoretical groundwork for American studies scholarship in the transnational era and opening new arenas for conceptualizing formations of imaginary belonging and subjectivity. This important state-of-the-field collection will appeal to a broad constituency of humanists working to overcome methodological nationalism.
