Elvis Presley. Marilyn Monroe. LeBron James. They're all American, of course, but like many cultural figures who hail from the United States, they have names and faces known the world over. With contributions from a diverse group of international scholars, "ConFiguring America" sheds light on how these figures, and their media representations, construct America's image beyond its borders. Essays also parse the distinction between celebrities and icons, showing that although these categories overlap and share many common traits, they differ in important ways.
