About Us

ISSN for the American Studies Blog

Dear Read­ers and Con­trib­u­tors, 

Before the new year rolls around, the edi­tors of the Amer­i­can Stud­ies Blog are hap­py to announce that the ASB now has an ISSN! The Nation­al ISSN Cen­ter of Ger­many (part of the Deutsche Nation­al­bib­lio­thek in Frankfurt/Main) has award­ed us the ISSN 2702–7767. 

This might be espe­cial­ly impor­tant for our many con­trib­u­tors who can now list their blog posts as (aca­d­e­m­ic) pub­li­ca­tions.  


Togeth­er with the entire ASB team, we wish you a won­der­ful and healthy New Year!  

Sab­ri­na and Maria
