Abstract in another language

This introduction outlines the current state of research on solidarity as it pertains to transnational American studies. It highlights how solidarity has, once again, become a buzzword in political, cultural, and academic debates in the United States and beyond, and it sketches exemplarily how the concept has been negotiated across disciplines. Solidarity continues to be a contested idea and certainly has its limits. Yet, as the contributions to 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.
