In the first edition of Transatlantic Studies, Heidi Slettedahl Macpherson and Will Kaufman argued that a new field of studies was emerging from the separate fields of insular area studies such as American Studies, European Studies, and African Studies. Now that Transatlantic Studies is a recognized area of inquiry in its own right, Macpherson and Kaufman extend their analysis of it. New Perspectives in Transatlantic Studies aims to extend the definition of Transatlantic Studies and explore the implications of such a definition by supplying a critical perspective, which links the diverse constituents of this interdisciplinary field. Therefore, it engages with issues of "the contact zone" in relation to globalization, migration, and the law; examines transatlantic artistic and cultural representation; and explores the economic, philosophic, and political implications of the transatlantic area.
