Atlantic Studies provides an international forum for research and debate on historical, cultural and literary issues arising within the new disciplinary matrix of the circumatlantic world. In particular, it seeks to foster a transcultural dialogue between the two hemispheres and, specifically, among the nations of Europe, the Americas and Africa. The Journal aims to celebrate the original Atlantic mappemonde: a highly critical space, centered not on a single nation or land mass but on a new cosmopolitan interchange of ships and peoples, cultures and texts, ideas and tools. Published on behalf of MESEA (The Society for Multi-Ethnic Studies: Europe and the Americas), the Journal aims to be an important site for scholarship on the comparative study of multi-ethnic cultures and societies. It challenges nationalist histories and literatures by focusing on the Atlantic as an arena of cultural change and exchange, translation and interference, communication and passage.
