Abstract in another language

Solidarity has, once again, become a buzzword in political, cultural, and academic debates in the United States and beyond. The special issue introduces exemplarily how the concept has been negotiated in transnational American Studies across disciplines. Solidarity continues to be a contested idea and certainly has its limits. Yet, as the essays in this special issue show, it can be and has been productively re-thought in literary, political, and cultural discourses as well as in contemporary scholarship, attesting to both its limits and — perhaps more importantly — its moral, social, and political promises. The essays make a case for social justice responses to past and current exclusions and injustices as being the driving force behind the continued saliency of solidarity, a concept that keeps being reformulated and reshaped time and again throughout modern history.
