Transnational Approaches to American and Canadian Literature and Culture
New York: Palgrave Macmillan 2015

Contributing to the recent transnational turn in literary studies, Comparative North American Studies expands the borders of American Studies to examine the connection between American literature and other literatures and cultures, specifically Canadian.
Through selected case studies and textual analyses of writers ranging from Tim O'Brien to Margaret Atwood, Nischik engages with a rich array of comparative approaches, including period-oriented, generic, thematic, imagological, and receptionist.
Offering topics ranging from a comparative analysis of American and Canadian modernism to narratives of the Canada-US border, this book encourages the fields of American Studies and Canadian Studies to think more hemispherically, transnationally, and ultimately more expansively. (Verlag)
